Harvest

Harvest

The tractor replaced the steam engine to power threshing machines.  Manpower was still required to pitch bundles, however.  As a teenager, John pitched bundles at harvest time on his aunt and uncles’ farm not far from this reenactment, although the tractor used was a bit newer than this one.

  2. I haven’t had the chance to stop by many blogs of late because I have no proper internet connection at the moment. These last few “Olde Worlde” agricultural images have been absolutely stunning. Fantastic.

  9. Fantastic viewpoint! I love going to the oldtime threshing demonstrations to see how it used to be done…To think that these machines were such an improvement over the way it had been done during the previous generations is very enlightening too.
