We're finished in the broccoli shed after today, yaay for that. Could possibly be the most boring thing I've ever done in my entire life. The remaining 30 days will be celery cutting.. at least we'll be outside working aye ☀️
Okay guys. It's been a while - again. 7,5 months in Australia, how did that happen?! 1,5 months on the apple farm, another 1,5 to go. So what's new? Last time was 6th of December so I want to say Plenty..
So, in the end of April I started my farm work in a small town called Stanthorpe in Queensland the "sunshine state". Since it started to get colder in Sydney back then I was a bit cocky cause ey, I was going to Queeeensland. I packed shorts, singlets and bikini. What I didn't know was that Stanthorpe is one of the coldest areas in Queensland. By now we have approximately 0-5 degrees in the mornings. And since I don't wanna spend money on a winter jacket, I'm working in two pairs of trousers and a couple of shirts and a couple of jumpers. Still cold.
Picking apples has been as fun as horrible. Or maybe not. The only fun hing about it is actually the friends I have made here which has nothing to do with apple picking itself.. It's been long days, hard work, a lot of bruises and scratches on arms and legs, I've been scared to death on the top of the ladder, been treated like an animal by supervisors etc..
The hostel is nice and I have nothing to complain about except the freezing nights.. We're having a blast on our Saturday nights at the pub and we're working out at the gym whenever we get a chance. Pretty normal life with other words.
