  Matt LaFleur reveals how much work Jordan Love needs at QB The Packers have clearly drafted Love to develop him for a few years, just as they did 15 years ago with Aaron Rodgers. With that in mind, it sounds as if LaFleur is telling the truth about wanting to keep Rodgers for years to come.Rodgers, on the other hand, has suggested that he thinks he’ll ultimately be forced out of Green Bay. It likely depends on how well Love develops, and how quickly he does it.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

During the harvest season from June until November, picking begins around midnight and finishes a few hours after dawn each day.

It is a tough job, but a hard-working picker can harvest as much as five kilogrammes (11 pounds) of petals a day.

While it is cooler to work after dark, the key reason harvesting is done at night is because it is only then that the flowers fully open.

"You really need to concentrate on looking for the blossoming flowers," Mehanna said. "We leave the closed ones for the following day."

In Egypt, more than 90 percent of jasmine fields are in Gharbiya governorate, fed by the rich minerals and waters of the Nile, shortly before the river reaches the Mediterranean Sea.

Farming is concentrated in the neighbouring districts of Qutur -- where the village of Shubra Beloula is located -- and Basyoun, otherwise famous as the birthplace of Egyptian and Liverpool football star Mohamed Salah.

The Fakhry essential oils factory handles around 70 percent of the region's floral production.

One of the first steps is to compress and grind the delicate blossoms down.

From that paste, the precious scented oils can be extracted by distillation.

"This was the first essential oils factory established in Egypt," factory floor manager Badr Atef told AFP, as he supervised the weighing and handing over of petal-packed crates.

- Tough work -

The scent of flowers is intense.

According to Atef, factory owner Ahmed Fakhry was inspired to farm jasmine when, as a young student in the 1960s, he visited the town of Grasse, the birthplace of French perfumes, on the Cote d'Azur.

Returning to Egypt, Fakhry introduced his new perfume knowledge and set up commercial jasmine farming and processing.

"Now 20 tonnes of jasmine flowers are picked daily" in Egypt, Atef said, estimating that some 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of the scented plant are farmed in the Gharbiya region.

From all those flowers, some five tonnes of dense jasmine paste is finally produced each year.

Egyptian farmers have long complained that the low production costs of their big rival India drive their prices down.

But the economic impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic has been harder still, with demand dropping sharply, farmers said.

Picking flowers is back-breaking work.

"Stand in the sun for a couple of minutes, and you'll see how hard this job is," said 60-year-old picker Waafa, who refused to harvest flowers this year because prices were too low.

Even on a good year, some pickers earn little more than a couple of dollars a day for hours of work, income Waafa slammed as "measly".

"Everything is expensive nowadays," she said.

But others say that jasmine-picking season is a time they enjoy.

"The sweetness is when we're all together picking," said Mehanna. "We swap stories and have fun."

Richard Sherman offers funny comment about Jimmy Garoppolo .
What the Niners will really be looking for is more pretty play from their quarterback. Garoppolo was excellent in 2019, throwing 27 touchdown passes and falling just shy of 4,000 yards. There are still questions about him after an underwhelming Super Bowl, however. That should be enough incentive to prove doubters wrong this season.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
