South Texas Farming

Kay Voss sent me these pictures before we left the valley but I was knee deep in getting ready to leave so didn't do anything with them. But I do know there are many farmers among you and farmers are always interested in farming practices in other parts of the country so I saved the pictures to share with you all.

                                4. old fashioned burlap sacks holding onions to dry for a few days
                              5-8 harvesting the onions:  4 men required....semi, tractor, and 1 to

                                9-16  harvesting kale.  All hand work.  They were very fast!  Rip off leaves, roll and wrap with tape, cut off ends and toss in a pile on
ground.
