The strawberry crate will cost $28 if you pick it this year instead of $40 at the counter. Were you all in favor of raising the minimum wage? That is one of the reasons for this inflation. The cost of gasoline, insecticides and labor shortages are the other three reasons. Expect an increase in the price of blueberries soon due to the shortage of bees.

Numbers of the week: 8. Eight strawberries contain as much vitamin C as one orange.

Thought of the week – As strawberries taste like strawberries, life tastes like happiness. (Alan)

Good week!
