Field Work

December 28, 2016

I visited my parents on their Maryland farm at Christmas and helped Dad cover the strawberries for winter. First, he used his Haybuster to blow on old straw. 

Next, we covered the rows with white tarp and anchored with sand bags. This is done mainly for deer control. The deer were eating the leaves and punching holes in the black plastic.

A lifetime of farming shows in Dad's hands at the kitchen table.

Mom and Dad prepare a hearty breakfast.

Happy New Year to all!
