Pine Island’s harvest is slowly but surely drawing to a close next week.
We’ve slowed down a little bit before the end due to late sequencing. “We get a certain amount to deliver each day for ten days,” explains Matt Giberson. “We wanted a certain number of barrels per day and that’s what we’ve been getting, so we have to deliver that within that time period.”
“It’s a little weird sometimes,” Matt says. “Usually we’re going full strength, but today we’re running just one crew and running two crews on Tuesday and Wednesday to finish up.” But the color looks really good and the beds that we’ve been harvesting have been great so far.
In the meantime, our team is getting a lot of other tasks done: there is a crew installing swan string, another crew cleaning ditches, and of course the latest bog renovations are coming along well!
