In this photo, you’ll notice that stately old tree…
Not a branch out of place in that forest you see…
That rustic old well house just popping and trim…
Sprinkled in snow, like some magical whim…
Somehow it takes me to a place back in time…
When life seemed more simple…
More simple and kind…
It’s not an illusion…
It is what you see…
A well house…
A forest…
A stately old tree…
Like branches and buildings all kissed by the snow…
Life’s joy and life’s pain comes weighted, I learn as I go…
What it all means to you?…
Only you know?…
The branches, the beauty…
God’s wonderful show…
Down on the farm with Tom Drew…

Harvest Break in Aroostook County

Holiday break, spring vacation week – you know about those. In Maine’s Aroostook County, there’s another item on the school calendar: Harvest Break.

Hoisting wooden barrels of potatoes on to the truck.

The Bondeson Farm in New Sweden is one of the last potato farms (if not the last) to use hand pickers. Bondeston switched to mechanized harvesters for a couple years but ended up switching back to hand pickers. Bondeson says the quality is better (less bruising) with hand pickers and it’s more fun! Each day the picking crews make fires in the fields and cook lunch.

Kids spend eight hour days hand picking potatoes into baskets which they dump into large wooden barrels. Each barrel filled earns them $2.50. The money is often spent on necessities like clothes for school.
