so i was going to do the sugar beet harvest this year but it is at the same time im moving to philly. i know there is usually something going on somewhere, so i want to start looking for work in the spring to do some harvesting so i can maybe actually save some money for once. any suggestions where i should look for work in the spring?

yeah, that's what's stopping me. i'll get cold feet and stay in the bay area if i wait too long, and the time i'm aiming to leave is too close to harvest, so i'm planning for next year...but in the meantime i'd like to make some money. i'll be looking for bike messenger work in philly, but i want to start saving money for certain things i want in my life so i need to make some with something like harvesting, and just mess to get by in the meantime.

in the spring? how about the southern hemisphere of the earth? that might be a good place to look for harvests.

different crops have different times of year that they yield, am i incorrect about that? i'd assume even in the northern hemisphere, even the u.s. that there would be something to harvest nearly any time of the year.

but not to jinx myself, but i may have found a regular job, which, boring as that is, will pay almost as much per week as beet harvest, at least where i was looking at doing it, and for only 40 hours. knock on wood.

Florida's citrus harvest is actually in the spring; they seem to start hiring people around Feb., and pickin' starts in March, goes for 3 months or so. Sure as shit wish I was down there now... Indeed.com had a whooollleee bunch of listings a couple weeks ago, look under 'Harvest Worker;' companies generally are hiring b/n 25-100 people at a time.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
