Hello, spectacular photo, I am sure oak trees were planted in middle of fields so farm workers could sit in the shade at harvest time,

I think oak trees are in the middle of fields because the hedge has been grubbed out.

Hello, you maybe right, but I have fond memories of sitting under an old Oak tree eating my lunch when helping at harvest time,

A nice photo , look very well organized and by people who knows what they are doing , how long would that have took with a one man band ?

We had a tenant farmer who grew spuds and when it came time to lift them he would lift the rows up and the women from the village would work there way along the rows and put the loose spuds in plastic bags , the farmers son would then tip each bag on a trailer and take them to be stored in the barn , when the day was finished the women would q up outside his back door and got paid in cash , looking at the size of that field a lot of them would have passed away before it was finished , how times have changed .
