AMEN! We had a co-worker whose parents owned a strawberry farm in Ponchatoula, LA. Every spring Friday afternoon she would take our orders at $8/flat. IIRC, that was 12 baskets, maybe 16 per flat. 'Tainyrate, she would arrive noon-ish Monday morning with her load. She would have risen around 4 that morning, gone out and picked our orders. Folks, these berries were ripened on the vine. We thought we had died and gone to Heaven.
