Sometimes I'm in denial about the change of seasons.
But nature makes sure that you pay attention
Almond trees on the way to work in March 2011
Almond trees on the way to work August 2011.
They are so heavy the branches are pulled down and the trees are so droopy looking.
And on the way home in this field they are already harvesting them.
Can you believe that whole trailer is filled to the brim with almonds?
They have several more lined up behind them.
Have you ever seen how they harvest almonds?
It's quite a sight.
They have the strangest looking harvesting equipment.
When you see them going down the road you'd think we were being invaded by some kind of aliens.
They go up to the tree, grab ahold and shake the "L" out of them.
That's why the farmers call them
(They really do, all of them!)
Then later they have another piece of equipment they drive come and sweep them all up in rows.
That thing above the trailer is sucking them up and spitting them out into the trailer bed.
Are the seasons changing where you live?Pin It
