It's a beast. It's a little terrifying. But it is awesome. It can pick a whole row of carrots in like 3 minutes.
I can't do that.
And today, I got to steer it (something no other employee has ever had the privilege to experience, I'm told, and I feel very lucky.)
Oh heavy, unforgiving steel and belts, hydraulics and powerful, powerful, tractor PTO... efficient, potentially deadly, carrot picker... it was a really fun new experience. Needing to be clear minded and focused during operation, I couldn't really take any pictures or videos of it in operation--but I wish I could for you, because it's really impressive.
Tomorrow--there will be carrot people... of course.
aaaaand... I need a social life...
