Photo of the Day: Sprayer on the Hogsback

U-Cut Blueberries at Brys Secret Garden on the Old Mission PeninsulaDonate to Help Support Old Mission Gazette

It’s that time of year when you’ll see tractors with sprayers behind them on the roads at all hours of the day and night. And chances are good that it might be one of my brothers, Dean or Ward (Johnson), or brother-in-law, Terry (Boursaw), driving them.

I happened upon this one at the Hogsback last night, and yep, it turned out to be Dean. Read more about the Hogsback here.

It’s not uncommon for farmers on the Old Mission Peninsula to spend 15 hours a day in the spray cabs right now, all leading to cherry season this summer and apple season this fall. Let’s pray that the weather cooperates.
