Harvest Work - Apples
Picking apples is very similar to pears except they're lighter. Same big ladder, same type of stabby trees,
same giant seemingly endless bin. But apples can be a pain because the farm bosses always seem to
be lurking around checking for bruises which unfortuantely show up almost straight away.
You'll usually get around $22 to $25 per bin because the apples are (relatively) light and because they
supposedly fill the bins quickly because they're round. To avoid bruises though, many farmers pay hourly
wages to apple pickers, especially on expensive varieties like Pink Ladies. On some of these farms they
watch you and yell at you to go faster, probably making it even more annoying than contract picking.
Apple trees can be huge, so you might have to use the scary 10 foot ladders at times. You'll probably
be colour picking as well, no strip picking in apple land. The trees can be brittle and the branches break
and damage easily, so you can't lean your ladder into the middle of the tree like with pears.
