Day 52 Fruit Picking -
So today we started picking the farm for the second time, as we usual do on a Wednesday morning. I was back out in the patch again, expecting to be picking for the day. Then by 10am they had such a backlog of fruit in the shed, I went in and spent the rest of the day packing. Fortunately we managed to actually make a dent in the pile of fruit to pack...but on the other hand the pickers have got way behind out in the patch. Really it is just a case of not enough staff...but the fruit is worth so little Greg can't afford to take anyone else on. As a result we shall all be working Saturday, at least until lunch time to get it done.
Nothing interesting really happened when I got home - just the normal TV, shower dinner etc. I did a little more into building up a hotlist of potential surf spots down the coast too - so many spots and 'only' 2 months to do it!
I got in contact with the second hand car dealer today by phone after work. He seems like a nice genuine guy, and I have arranged to go and see the car tomorrow after work. Fingers crossed it will be what I'm looking for!
