Dates Harvest Season And Can't pray For Rain






I  am happy that it is cloudy  today . But i can't pray for rain as rain will spoil date gardens that are ready  to harvest in a week .I hope it won't rain until farmers are done with their date harvesting process .
They need sunlight so that harvested  half ripen fruit can be laid down under sun and  reach to it's state where it's color and taste is perfect  to eat and farmers will be rewarded for their long hard work .  Some images that might help you to get it

                           i could not locate source once i missed mistakenly 




                                 dates are harvested when they look half ripen like this 

                 
                                                           cooking light.com

there were numerous dishes  made by dates when i searched for date dishes but i found this one so tempting :)

Two sisters of hubby are married in villages near our city .They have date gardens and mango gardens as well. mangoes season is on peak as mangoes are in market already .It is monsoon season and it has been raining in almost whole country . We would love it but after date harvest of course . Monsoon season comes with clouds and rains though one thing i don't like about it .Air disappears completely .It only appears in shape of wind storm  otherwise everything stays still  as lifeless :(

I can see  bundle of air in my imagination moving through atmosphere .Performing her jobs so well. Moving clouds ,spreading seeds, drawing on heart of lakes and pouring life in scenes.I can't count her duties though i am glad she helps birds to fly ,branches to knock on strictly closed windows and fly away umbrella so one can feel how touch of rain  transform soul :)

Stay amazing guys ,sending tons of positive energy and lots of love and best wishes!
God Bless You All!

  2. Dates are amazing, but they just getting more and more popular here. I should use them more often in my kitchen, even though they can be quite expensive. Have a lovely day☺

  4. I really enjoyed your post Baili, I love dried dates - on UK supermarket shelves they are of course brown and sticky in boxes. My mother used to fill them with marzipan to make them like sweets. I hope the rain holds off for your harvest. Betty x

  13. Dates are very good to eat. That pie looks really good.

    Hopefully the rain will hold off just long enough for the datex to be OK then it will rain to cook things down for you.

  14. I remember the first time I saw a picture of date trees; it was here on your blog! I had never realized how they looked before, I just knew they were delicious. It's interesting that they are harvested when half-ripe and finish ripening off the tree. I too will hope for good weather until the harvest is finished. Farming of any kind is so dependent on the whims of nature. Farmers have to be eternal optimists!

    Have a lovely week, dear baili.

  23. I remember my Grandmother making a candy at Christmas called Date Loaf. It was shaped in a roll and stored in a damp cloth. No one makes it anymore. I love dates and eat them sometimes. Loved the article.

  26. O trabalho agrícola é um trabalho ingrato. Que chova só depois da colheita. Gostei do texto e das fotografias...
    Uma boa semana com muita saúde.
    Um beijo.

  27. Dates are so Yummy, and I haven't had them in awhile. I hope the rain didn't ruin the date harvest. That is interesting to see the date fields. Is that pecan pie that I see? I love that as well. It reminds me of Autumn. Enjoy all the date goodies, Baili. They really are very tasty.

  30. Hi, Baili. I hope the date harvest has gone well in your country. I think of all the amazing people around the world who are working hard to keep people fed, like your date harvesters. One good thing that I hope comes out of this pandemic is a greater appreciation for the people who keep societies functioning. I grew up in a time and place when the dignity of work ~ all work ~ was respected. When I was in my twenties I lived in southern California. I was blown away by the beauty of the date orchards in southernmost California ~ so alien and strange after the boreal forests of Canada. I can understand how much you enjoy the orchards. Hugs to you, my friend.
