costs per bushel were $2.98 for fruit from the organic block compared with
$0.76 for the standard."
Bagging apples costs me about $1.25 per bushel, including paid labor.
This figure is actually less considering that we bag the apples when we thin
them so my cost per bushel is skewed. Maybe someone should tell the Cornell
people about bagging apples.
