Thank you Kurt.  This helps.  We have one very low priced farmstand in 
the area (but their tomatoes are trash), so get lots of price comments 
(but also get comments that our prices are very reasonable or even "good").

Then eventually dropped to $2.  I also put them in pints and quarts and convert the per pound price to pint or quart prices.
