Thank you everyone for the thoughts on picking containers.  The wells and
wade bags look like just the thing I want at Oesco.
I would also like to thank the person that mentioned buying Lemon Grass at
Asian markets and sticking in soil.  It works, bought 50 and now have about
45 very healthy plants.

We ordered a fruit picking basket from www.oescoinc.com .  They have them in
different sizes and frames, but most have a rapid empty bottom.  It works
great for okra when it gets to a height that you're not squatting to harvest
it.   It's really designed to work to harvest standing up, but works great
when you have the right conditions. We have a 3/4 bushel which is too bulky
and really has too much capacity but I think a half bushel size would work
