Bringing In The Sheaves







Because there are a lot of farms around here, there are also a lot of sheaves. They are used for several things, including feeding livestock. People also use them for outdoor decorations in the fall. These are just a few I came across recently.

 “You’ll see your children grow up, your family lovely and lissome as orchard grass. You’ll arrive at your grave ripe with many good years, like sheaves of golden grain at harvest.

the photos are wonderful and now I have that old hymn in my head. I love the song, bringing in the sheaves, daddy and I used to do it as a duet many moons ago.

i was surprised at how many farms are near you until this year the boys had a football game at one of the high schools in your area and the way my gps took us was all rural, so pretty...before i had only been around the jmu area!

You live in an area that the seasons are very different and the way they should be. Perfect for Thanksgiving.

Dad called them "Shocks". It was hard work cutting them with a hook or machete and tying them into shocks in the fields. It was pretty when the field was done.
