I remember I really liked the job and, was good at it too. I wish I had a stand I could run right now, but basically I would get the berries from the field, then me and, Grandpa would take them out of the flats from the field and, sort them, putting them into quarts and, flats to sell them in, then Grandpa would leave me to run the place. I did that for 2 or 3 summers, my favorite was the stand right next to dairy queen, because I could always eat their everyday, it was always a toss up between the chicken strips basket, with toast and, gravy or the triple bacon cheeseburger lol. I loved the peanut buster parfaits too so good, for those that didn't read my discussion right before this. I am referring to strawberries, that we sold, but we also sold cherries, blueberries, blackberries and, raspberries.

@TRBRocks420 oh ok I just learned something lol. I'm not sure if we have Dairy Queen here but I've heard it on American movies / TV shows. I always assumed it was a place that sold ice creams and milkshakes.

Aside from Dairy Queen, did you sell your berries? It sounds like a fun thing to do.

I'm not sure how much time you spent at the stand compared to how much time you spent in DQ looking at the stand.
