Fall Field Work

As the autumn season rolls along, there are a number of important farm duties to accomplish before the cold season is upon us. For us the main tasks at hand are the potato harvest and garlic planting.  Each of these warm, sunny fall days are filled with these seasonal chores.

Shown here is the furrowing for garlic rows using our 1947 Allis-Chalmers model B with the precision belly-mounted cultivator configured with three chisel plow points. To celebrate this wonderful time of the year, we thought to write a poem Fall Field Work to share (see below).

Fall Field Work

With summer wildflowers a thing of the past,

These warm autumn meadows won’t long last.

Knowing fall-time follies turn to foil,

And soon we can’t fork in winter’s soil,

We hurry fields with a furry of toil.
