The Work in Fields

The fields were tended wisely and with care. Work in the fields started from sunrise to sunset and during harvest time the farmers passed their days in the fields without resting. Work was hardest in summer especially during threshing time. When everything had to be done by livestock and men. In time of drought products were scarce and when rainfall was abundant and crops were plenty the farmers had to sell them at a cheap price or give them to charities.
