The Cuckoo in June - David Atkins

I have read a number of tree change books where city folk make a go of it on a farm. This one was from an accountant who became an apple grower in the 1950s.

The difference here is the book was written with 35 years of experience in apple growing. So it is much more technical and it took a bit to get into. It is just a bunch of stories, very little narrative arc.

It is enjoyable, the stories of his transient pickers are particularly entertaining, and I liked some of the technical aspects.
