Harvesting Vegetables in a Thunderstorm, Wilcox County

As someone on my Facebook page suggested, few people realize how vegetables get to market. Of course we know in South Georgia, but the wider world often has no idea. It’s a labor-intensive process, especially with “truck” crops such as watermelon, squash, and others that require hand harvesting. I passed by this busy group near Owensboro right at the moment a downpour came and sent them seeking shelter from rain and lightning.

    BEEN THERE, DONE THAT. WE HAD PEACHES AND TOMATOES THAT WE HAD TO HARVEST. WATCHED THE CLOUDS ALL THE TIME. IT IS LABOR INTENSIVE AND UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN THERE YOU DON’T HAVE A CLUE!!! CONNIE RAPER, MONTEZUMA. GA
