Daily Photo ~ 7-13-11

Hay Field across from the Old Shumate Lumber Mill
Rockbridge County, VA


Just after I took this photo, there came one tractor from one direction and another from the other, and I was able to snap a shot of the two of them passing one another. Both of them  had funky little umbrellas over the drivers...though I doubt it did much good considering  the thermometer in my car was registering 98 degrees. Heaven only knows what it was out there in the middle of that bare field. I tell you, farming is not for the weak of body, mind, or spirit. You can see the area they had already cut in this shot.

"From breakfast, or noon at the latest, to dinner, I am mostly on horseback, Attending to My Farm or other concerns, which I find healthful to my body, mind, and affairs.”
~ Thomas Jefferson
