A Colorful Harvest Time

October 31, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This part of the world is very dry and therefore is great for drying food.  It is not uncommon to see bright red peppers hanging from a window sill as people dry their own stash for winter use.  The other thing that has been funny for us to see, is entire streets or sidewalks covered with food drying!  Peppers, dates, corn…it is not uncommon to see them stretching out for a kilometer or more, from curb to curb.  Quite the sight!

I love how colorful harvest is.  Bright reds, golden yellows, deep greens…harvest time is full of vivid color!

So enjoy the following pics of this year’s colorful harvest…

From curb to curb, dates cover this city street as they dry in the fall sun.

A woman and her children work to move the dried dates from the street to waiting boxes and then they will be shipped around the country.
