I don’t know if it’s as much about trying to get it right or trying new angles at the same thing. This year, there are more strawberry fields around my house since I moved here about 6 1/2 years ago.

I am struck by different views of essentially the same thing each day. In the above piece, the orange flags which I understand to mean the field has been sprayed, caught my gaze.

The berries require being harvested every 2 days or so depending upon the weather and they did spray in between – but the flags winding their way back to the second crew intrigued me.

It also intrigued me that once again – the crews appeared to be lined up and bent over like a team – which they are – but when the flat is full the picker boogies – I suspect piece work incentives and a little bit of everyone for himself.
