The Harvest....Continued

During the first day of harvest....six rattlesnakes were killed.
Dangerous....yes.....wasted.... NO!
They were saved by the workers, for a little treat later on that night.

Potatoes freshly pulled from the ground.

The women gather the potatoes and the men load them onto the trailers.

Loading....trailer after trailer. At the time we were in the fields, they had been working for
fourteen hours, and had several hours still ahead.

Waiting for the next section of potatoes to be dug up, so they could gather.
I thought they were beautiful ladies.

And finally, The Farmer, The Boy and Uncle Pinguino,
Enjoying the harvest!

I love your pictures! I made my kids come in and look at them--they are great. I envy you being able to be outside as it is still 112 here!
