Vine tomatoes @ 0.79 cents a pound and regular asparagus @ $1.79 a pound. This is where I do 80% of all food shopping. Just like I did in Crumlin Village when I was a boy. Mam will tell you.
In contrast, the beets in the top photo cost more that the tomatoes and the asparagus together but they are really top quality. I had to buy them in another s/m because my little cheapie place did not have what I wanted. I am going to pickle these beets over the next few days. $3.99 for six beetroots. Outrageous!
The top photos are of the beets being pickled. I used the same formula as for the vegetables but used half beetroot juice and half water.
