Herfst in Nederland

Every year around this time, in the Netherlands, all you see in the countryside are piles and piles of sugar beets. They are harvested and sent to processing plants to turn them into sugar. This harvesting time is known as de bietencampagne (the beet campaign). This lasts from September to the end of the year. In this period the sugar factories run 24 hours a day.

I love autumn here…the leaves change colours for months. Unlike back home where it is summer for three months, then three days of autumn, then five months of winter!!

More pretty leaves!
