I have two tomato questions, maybe I should go to the tomato forum but I know you guys know the answers.
1. How do you manage canning when all your tomatoes aren't ripe at the same time? I want to buy a bushel but since it would be pre-boxed, some would probably be less ripe. Can I blanch & freeze whichever are ripe that day until they're all ready?
2. What is a good price for a bushel of tomatoes? My place has tomatoes for $.99/lb which is about the best you'll see in VA, and they'll sell me a 1/2 bushel for $7, which would be a good deal, maybe 12 pounds to a 1/2 bushel I think.
