Picking Corn 2018

In early October, 2018, I helped to pick an acre of corn plus a few roles of alfalfa on a Saturday morning. My host family had a tractor cut down the stalks so we didn’t have to walk through the stalks and weeds; a lot easier than it was last year. It always feels good to be outside in the sunshine working with others.

While we were out in the fields some men from the village were walking through the fields looking for wild boar; wild boars can easily destroy fields and streams. We heard them shoot a few times but it seemed for wild pheasants and not boar. It is the closest that I have ever actually been to a hunter out in nature that I am aware of.
