Un travail difficile que celui des agriculteurs.
Picturit: These fruitfarmers have to make sure they pick at the right time... I was a fruitpicker for years and LOVED it. Hard work for sure but a lot of camaraderie.
Astrid.
nice shot of this guy on the well used tractor, Astrid. i hope you are having some good weather out there.
Picturit: Thank you Ayush. Yes we do have great weather here and tomorrow and Wednesday we will have HOT and humid weather with a chance on hail...so the fruitpicker are very determined to get the bigger part of the crop in... hail and fruit don't go well together.

Oh yes, we saw lots of apples lying on the meadows, now it is the time to collect and to pick up them. I love your sereis!
Picturit: Thank you Philine. They want to get the fruit in before the hail destroyes them....
Astrid.
It was such a great day out, seeing the apple pickers! And I LOVE your signature. smile
Picturit: Thank you and yes we had a great day out. I loved it that I could show you 'how they do it here'... it was a feast of recognition being a fruitpicker myself for years. Retired now...
Astrid.
The International Astrid is a mighty machine, strong and not afraid to get its hands dirty. A good honest worker. Now who does that remind me of?
Picturit: smile... I know, the name is on the tip of my tongue... I was a fruitpicker for years in Arkel... hard work but so much fun and camaraderie AND free apples all year around... after 'the pick' we were allowed to go back and get the apples still hanging..I made a lot of applesauce.
Astrid
Have a great day smile

Let us hope it is a bumper season for apples Astrid. I see you have turned yourself into a tractor! I always knew you were clever but..
Picturit: I think it is great year for fruit again and these are good apples.

I love these apples and we picked two from the ground and ate them in the car...a real treat smile

I love apples. Too many of the old varieties have gone and most of the ones the supermarkets sell are tasteless
Picturit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elstar this is a really good apple and fresh from the tree it is a treat, we picked two from the ground and ate them in the car... smile

Did you pick a few, Astrid?
Picturit: Two from the ground, that fell off the tree... we were allowed...

A very tasteful apple.
Astrid.
I have excellent apples right now though a wind storm over night might have knocked them all off that perfect tree. All fruit farmers will be out this morning picking up fruit.
Picturit: Same story here, they expect too hot and humid weather in the next two days and that will result in hailstorms.... so it is now in a hurry to the apples from the trees....
Nothing beats apples fresh from the tree.

Nice hard working young man and he is posing especially for you. Those trees are full of apples - still lots of work.
Picturit: I asked him if I could take some pictures and he allowed us to walk around. Een goed appel jaar.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elstar
Astrid.
Yummy, I love fresh picked apples.Much nicer than those which have been stored for months.
Picturit: I totally agree and this one is the Elstar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elstar
We found two on the ground and ate them in the car... smile
Astrid.
He has a healthy tan...
Picturit: He is outdoors for most of the time. He is the son of the owner...

Mmmmm.. harvest time! Let's hope it's a good crop this year. Are these eating apples?
Picturit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elstar It is a great apple very crisp and good taste. We picked two from the ground and had the treat in the car smile
Astrid.
Oh your signature is PERFECT!
Picturit: Thank you.. this one was fun.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elstar A great apple for many purposes.
Astrid.
It looks like a lovely day to be working outside, InternationAstrid! smile
Picturit: It was a great day. Last Saturday this was.
Don't you just love it...I extended the nameplate and took away the 'L' and made it Astrid... This is much fun to me smile
Astrid.
