Our harvest comes to a stop after just five days, due to heavy rains
Yesterday evening it began to rain here in Montesa, as well as in the whole province of Valencia. What would be excellent news at any other time of the year is a real bummer right now. Barely five days after having kicked off this year's harvest season, we had to send all of our harvesters back home this morning.
Wet fruit should never be picked, it would rot prematurely. It'll take a bit of patience now, there is nothing else we can do but wait until the sun shines again and until the fruits are completely dry. And what does the weather forecast look like? Unfortunately not all too good, it predicts that it will be raining right until the end of this week.
As soon as the skies turn blue again, we will take up harvesting again at full speed!
