Pogo Seat Makes Pickin' Fun
The need to stoop and squat to pick berries is a thing of the past thanks to a nifty strap-on stool from Kruuse, a Dutch company. Called the Port-A-Stool, Texas Milking Stool or Strap-On Milk Stool, the one legged, spring-loaded stool lets you bounce down the berry aisle like a kid on a pogo stick.
A nylon belt wraps around the waist. Three short straps run from the belt to the seat of the stool and adjust to snug the seat up to the wearer's hips.
Sue Hazeltine, Janesville, Wis., enjoys using the spring-loaded stool when picking strawberries. "I just bounce along from plant to plant," she says.
