This year, since we didn't harvest last year, we have LOTS of sticks. We are having to pick up last years sticks and this years sticks. That's a lot of sticks. I tried to leave the sticks alone... but they just slow you down on the harvester.
One of my bright ideas was to hire a stick crew this year to pick up the sticks. Cheap labor. If I could get all the sticks picked up with my crew, then Mr. David and the Nutty Papa would be able to focus on the machines. We got off to a good start. The crew was willing... but they didn't last. Eventually, Mr. David got the job by default. Good thing he's a hard worker.
Here's my crew. They're cute. But they lack endurance. Maybe they'll be better next year!
