We live in a bountiful part of New York, with lots of fruit trees and vineyards dotting the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes region. Immigrants come here annually from Mexico and Jamaica to tend the trees, prune the vineyards, and help pick the fruit. Some of their jobs have been replaced by machinery, but one of the essential jobs they do, which no machine can manage, is cut away the creepers that climb the trees.
