Thoreau for your Tuesday…

‘This is the seventh day of glorious weather.Perhaps these might be called Harvest Days.Within the week most of the apples have been gathered;potatoes are being dug;corn is still left in the fields,though the stalks are being carried in.Others are ditching and getting out muds and cutting up bushes along fences,-what is called ‘brushing up”-burning brush,etc”. October 11.1857.

‘I saw a farmer busily collecting collecting pumpkins on the 14th,-Abel Brooks,-trembling over his corn fields and bringing the pumpkins out to the sides on the path, on the side of the field,where he can load them…’October 16,1856.greatpumpkincharliebrown8 - Copyth (5) - Copy230px-Henry_David_Thoreau
