With the sun high overhead, three workers with bare feet plucked bright splotches of color from rows of plants at Apple Hill Farm in Concord on Wednesday, dropping stems in buckets of water to keep them fresh amid the high temperatures that offered only a sporadic breeze. “I’d still rather be outside than anywhere else,” said Kim Proulx of Tilton, one of the workers, who will all help turn the flowers into bouquets.
