Yesterday I looked up from planting trees and saw the big machines descend upon the farm that surrounds us, the land belongs to John’s Uncle. These are not our beans, we do not crop the fields.
They are huge, heavy, expensive machines and move fast and within minutes we were choking and sneezing in heavy dust as the beans were being lifted, sorted and carted away. I managed to get all the laundry in off the line before they went to that side though. The house is literally surrounded in his fields – so we ran to close the windows. John’s uncle rents these fields to a local cropper and I rent my cows fields from the cropper. The cows did not care of course it was all a mild entertainment to them.
Let’s hope Poppy is not waiting until the spring. Her due date is in three days time. I think she might be right on time. I hope so anyway.
I hope you have a lovely day
