    Taken in Eastern Washington, by Lake Chelan. What a great area. The only thing is the apple industry there is economically struggling. The second pic is a smudge pot, used for heating under apple tree's when the frost is present. The third pic is like a huge fan to also keep the apples from freezing. There are several per acre.

    Interesting,

    It's pretty amazing what growers have to go through to get their product to market.

    I'm not an apple grower, but I do know what a smudge pot is...my mom grew up in Florida and they have the same things for orange groves. Looks like you live in a beautiful area...thanks for sharing your photos.

    Beautiful country.

    I really like the first image.

    In Florida, the citrus growers go through the same thing..

    Many groves have been whipped out in hard freezes..

    thank you for sharing.
