Berry picking container

http://xrl.us/kkdrj 8 July 2008 Berry picking container.
The container is a small lunch thermos purchased at Wal-mart.

This container is used for most of my fruit picking. The container is a good size and the ridge around the top reduces spillage, if the container falls over. This is far superior to the ubiquitious tin can tied around the waist.

The baffle in the first picture can be left in place to from a further barrier in the event of tipping when full of fruit. This baffle only extends halfway down the container.
