Before and After a Little Moisture

2 Oct

Hazelnut harvest is always a harvest that is either super muddy or super dusty…there is no middle ground, usually. Except when we started last week, it has rained a little and there was just enough moisture in the soil to keep the dust down but not make anything muddy. 

Here is the difference, this photo is the start of the day when the moisture was perfect…

And here is later in the day when the ground was all dried out again…

Trusts me, dust is always better than mud during nut harvest, but wow it was sure nice to enjoy some “perfect” harvesting conditions of only for a few hours!

Happy Friday! Stay tuned for some harvest videos and photos on Monday!

    How are Hazelnut yields this year?

      They are looking pretty good. We don’t know a whole lot until they are all out of the trees and picked up. So I am hoping there are a few more out there, time will tell 🙂

    Good luck with harvest! And if you don’t need the extra moisture, feel free to send it our way. 😉
