When I was in my teens I worked at whatever summer jobs I could get. This included picking strawberries, beans, and in the fall, apples , hoeing tobacco plants in the fields and working the tobacco harvest. I started when I was 13. I did not lack a work ethic. One summer I decided to fit in a couple of days of picking raspberries. I lasted the morning. The raspberry place was about 2 1/2 miles from my house and I walked there and back. Even I could see it just wasn't worth the effort for what I was getting paid. I figure it must take 4 or 5 wild blueberries, volume wise to equal 1 raspberry. No wonder they charge what they do. I don't begrudge them a penny.
