Tobacco is a big crop in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
I have been told, the "golden" tobacco is more valuable.
After it is cut, it is hung upside down
and left to dry in the sun, before going to the barns
to be hung and dried further.
(an Amish scooter waits for its rider)
This is another way to dry the tobacco in the sun.
Stacked on tobacco lathe.
(depends on the farmer as to what they prefer)
All along the countryside, this is the sight...
Tobacco harvest time.
Today is the first full day of Fall !
Time to bring out the bucket of scarves, hats and gloves
and set them by the front door.
It is the perfect place...
grab a scarf on the way out the door
to chase off the early morning chill.
I always keep a few extra in the bucket
for "snowman" making !
(Last October we had a few inches of snow !)
My Punchneedle snowmen are wearing the latest
fashion in scarves, hats, earwarmers and mittens !
(actually they are last years styles, whatever was left
in the bucket...but they don't mind !)
Enjoy this amazing Autumn day !
