Mowing
« on: March 13, 2015, 10:58:52 PM »
I have job security.  There are almost 400 acres to mow between all the rows of blueberries.  These plants are new, planted last fall.  I'd rather be sawing!

My son is the manager of this farm. Obviously these new plants won't be producing berries but the projected harvest this year for this 3 year old farm is in the neighbor hood of 24,000 lbs. of organic blueberries destined for Costco and Trader Joe's.  There is about 15 people working 9 hour days 6 days a week right now and that will increase as the season progresses.  There are about 8 varieties that mature at different times over the course of the summer.  Harvest starts in June and ends in late September. So it's going to get crazy round here.

No added or extra zeros, takes 2 weeks to mow then you start over then you start over, then you start over all spring and summer and fall long.  But the blueberries taste good! :laugh:
