Even too busy to take time off to go camping on weekends!
Harvest lasts between now and the end of October depending on what type of crop it is. There's a huge field of peas at the top of our entrance road that is ready to be harvested now.
My grandfather and his brothers grew up in Nova Scotia and the oldest brothers started taking the train to Saskatchewan in order to help with the grain harvest every year. Eventually, my grandfather was old enough to go as well and he ended up buying a farm near Moose Jaw.
Seems to me that people from Nova Scotia should still be hopping on a train to Saskatchewan! With Nova Scotia's current 9.1% unemployment rate, and Saskatchewan's now record low 3.3% unemployment rate they could all find jobs pretty quickly.
I had a quick look at field harvest jobs available right now...
A lot even include room and board.
But, we've developed a lazy society up here in Canada, and it's too easy to get government handouts. So people would rather do that than hop on a train to get a job.
A few random pics over the last couple of days...
Ruth had planted a delphinium.
Maybe nice with three or four more.
Zoomed in on the "supermoon".
The park held a canoe clinic. Ended up with about a dozen kids attending.
Another supermoon shot, this one at dusk so there's still a bit of a pink hue to the sky.
Today's Amazon.com deal of the day?
I always wanted one of those projection alarm clocks. You know, the ones that display the time on your ceiling so that all you have to do is open one eye just a hair to see what the time is...
