Hop-picking

A linky about bilberry-picking took me back to one of the stories that the Deceased Lady’s father told me, of when he was a boy. Every year, the whole family used to go hop-picking in Kent. This would have been in late-Victorian and Edwardian times. These YouTube videos aren’t from quite that long ago, but I doubt things had changed much in the meantime.
