CLEARING & RAIN I woke up at 6 and I looked out find cloudy skies and a cold wind. So we snuggled down and went back to sleep. At about 8 o’clock the Cherry Head (Joe!)¹ came around to tell us we were working so we all rugged up and drove out to the orchard. It was knee deep in mud!! Johnny (brainless one) and I were put on collecting lugs with a 4WD tractor and trailer, but when Sean and Luc came and took him and the tractor, I got to drive the old 2 wheel drive tractor round while Kerry Scanlan picked up the lugs. It was a pretty miserable place and the old tractor wasn’t too good in the mud.
¹The orchard foreman, Joe, was a nasty, creepy little man.
