Kiwifruit picking time was revised yesterday. Start time 10am today ( Thursday ) - that time came and went. Eventually after a long wait for bins to arrive 2 trucks with 96 each arrived and some picking got done.( About 2 hours was wasted waiting for bins.) Picking started at 3 pm. 22 pickers got 87 bins off before it got too dark at 5.30. Here are the bins arriving on a truck with a trailer. Now I need to get to bed. Picking starting again 8 or 8.30 in the morning.
Quilting is a wonderful hobby for me. I love the beautiful fabric and colours - my artistic side comes alive.
I have lived in Te Puna near Tauranga since 1978, where my husband ( R ) and I own a small orchard where we grow Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many other fruit, nuts and vegetables. When I was young I was a teacher and particularly liked teaching art. I have also worked in the Kiwifruit Industry in Quality Control and Auditing. I love to create and am currently passionate about patchwork and quilting. I sew by hand and using my Bernina Aurora 440 machine.
