asparagus harvest


One of the more back-breaking crops grown around here. The fields look like plain dirt and then you see all these people out in them, bending over. They carry sharp, V-shaped knives and that is how they cut the spears, down low to the ground. Local university has been working on a commercial picker for years.

My back hurts just thinking about it!

I couldn't do that. I'd be out of work in no time, with muscles pulled in my back.

Thoughts about my back too. I'll appreciate asparagus even more than I have been.
