Karen, Craig & Ryan Beat the Rain!

Ryan & Craig-we picked 125 poundsAce Picker Karen Mahshi reported, “Craig Rossi and his co-worker at Bayside Insulation Ryan joined me at the Blackwell home in Walnut Creek. We picked 125 pounds of Valencia oranges. I found that the oranges could not easily be pulled off, so I had Ryan hold the gleaner (picker pole) underneath an orange while Craig used my long-handled pruner to cut the stem. I removed the stem & leaves attached to the orange and put the fruit in bags. This was definitely a 3-person project.
