Picking berries with two hands is a lot faster than picking with one. That’s just some of that real-world math that I’ve learned along the way. If you have a berry-picking mission in your future, take a minute to make yourself a hands-free berry picking bucket before you head out.

This will give you a handy, spill-proof container for your berries and full use of both of your hands. Plus, it’ll be really easy to keep up with how many gallons you’ve picked.
