[NAFEX] Selling fruit (small scale)

Do you mind me asking what size bucket they were selling for $9.  Although I'm sure there's a lot of variation, I'm trying to get a feel for local pricing.

  I went to a U-pick for peaches, and the main variety ripe at the time had a lot of little scars from a late frost.  Brown rot would start in a scar, and the picker would see it and drop the fruit on the ground.  There were vast numbers of rejected fruit on the ground, much of it with one teeny brown spot per peach.  I filled the two five gallon buckets I'd intended, at $9 per bucket.  But I filled another 2 buckets with the rejects and told the owner what I had and asked what he wanted for them.  He only charged me $2 a bucket for them!  Of course, I was up till 2 am canning them, as they wouldn't keep even a day in the August heat.  Wine is another good way to quickly dispose of perishable fruit.  Donna
