This afternoon, I have making a trip with my electric bike to the Netherlands, 12 km of my home in Belgium.
Between Aardenburg and Oostburg.
The white tulips were in bloom, but the red and pink colours were still one week to early.
The weather was wonderful lovely almost no wind and splendid springtime sun.

Harvest Tulips:
Most of the spring crops are harvested in summer. After the crop is sufficiently dead, the bulbs are ripe enough for harvest. Through a harvester bulbs are removed undamaged from the ground. The harvester removes the bulbs out of the ground and then separates the sand from the bulbs through a sieve. In this way, as much as possible on the ground land left and only come to the bulbs in the box for further processing.
After harvesting of the bulbs they are dried. The bulbs are harvested in boxes and can be placed using a forklift for the dry wall. The dry wall blows a mixture of warm air through the boxes. Returning to dry requires a specific approach and is supported by the knowledge of the breeder and the climate computer. Through sophisticated control techniques can be given proper treatment by species and crop. The climate computer monitors and controls the temperature, humidity, ventilation etc. Only with a modern equipment climate control remain guaranteed healthy bulbs. After drying, the last sand of the bulb mechanically separated by means of a sieve.
