Thought of the Day #232 - Delicates

Why do raspberries $5 for a half pint? They're very, very delicate. I
suspect that the raspberry farmers crush half the crop prior to getting
'em into the plastic cases. The raspberry bushes in our yard are
producing several gallons of berries a week. Picking, washing and moving
the berries around just in my small environment results in many
casualties. Luckily most of the berries I work with are destined for
crushing anyway, but it did bring me to an understanding for the high
priced store raspberries. Severely crushable delicate beasties they are.
