Getting Ready To Harvest Onions











Some left in the field


They've moved on to the second field now

We've been watching the farmer across the street from us all winter. We watched him as he tilled the fields, planted the onions and when he irrigated the fields. We were afraid we wouldn't get to watch him harvest, but he managed to do it the day before we have to leave.

A couple of days ago a couple large semis came in with large containers for the onions. Today a bunch of migrant workers came in to harvest. It didn't take all that long but I sure would want to have to work in that heat.

The pictures kind of speak for themselves.
