Dont take the title of this blog literally. It's still quite the opposite of a slow down in terms of work being done. We just finished out early picking of honey crisps called color picking. We're basically only choosing the apples on the tree that have the right amount red coloring on them. This is something the consumer market dictates as higher grade apples even though the taste isn't significantly different from the apples with a little less red coloring on them. So off we went and set up for picking. We had a bunch of white reflectors called extenday out in the rows of trees to encourage coloring from the ground up that had to be tucked away and rolled out again once we were done picking certain fruits.
