After taking off Sunday—we always try to keep Sunday free of un-necessary work
We began again on the pinto bean field. Because of the nature of dried pinto beans, we can’t start work until around 2:00 in the afternoon–and then will work until the light holds no longer. (although there are lights on the combine, by that time of day we are tired.)
Mornings are not lazy nor are they particularly drifting
They are full of all sorts of tasks and projects which must be done by lunch. Then there are those things which also must be accomplished in a most ordinary fashion in a daily basis
By two o’clock in the blazing magical light of the afternoon sun, we set back out for the pinto bean field
Once more until it is time to stop-grab a quick supper, continue on…then gather ourselves into the last push of changing the water before dark
Working together in a companionly way
Until we stop for the night.
Harvest…a lovely satisfaction.
