Hahaha, I don't think I had met you guys in 2019, as I also did some posts about picking macadamia nuts. It was a constant battle with the squirrels unttil I figured it out.
Now I didn't have one of your fancy telescopic pickers and I had to climb the trees. A bit difficult at 4am in the mornings in the dark.
Yes, I got up before the squirrels at harvesting time and picked hundreds of macadamias and their outer shells are as hard as steel.
To be fair I left a fair amount of nuts below the trees for the squirrels.
I am glad that you guys had a bumper harvest.
!BEER and !PIZZA
