A peck measures 8 quarts.

I think you're being a little too literal in this forums lead in text. But thanks for the answer.
Is that 2 gallons? It seems to me that the peck is a measurement of vegetables, like tomatos, green beans or lima beans. Come to think of it, those farm baskets are often peck sized, right? Do you know?

I think the farm baskets usually can be either half a peck or a full peck. A peck is about 2 gallons. It's a bit of a rough estimate because we're not dealing with liquid or grain.

So for all these years I've been buying by the peck at the farm stands and didn't know it.

A peck is how many you can grab and stick in your basket before the chickens get after you. Heheheeee
