Migrant worker

So many people are complaining about the illegal immigrants and how they should be kicked out of the country, well after just picking a gallon of blueberries I say let these people try doing the work that these migrant worker have to do all day and then see if they want to get rid of all the field workers and have to do their work.  I picked a half bushel of bush beans this morning and that is all bent over with my head to the ground and now I picked the blueberries again bent over as the most of the ripe berries are low on the bushes and under neath  the branches.  I worked less than an hour at each job and all I could think of was the poor field workers who do that for 8 hours a day with very little break and very little pay and I am ready to join the picket line to get them all a raise!!!  There would be very little fresh vegetables or berries if we didn’t have them here illegal or not we need them and I think really take advantage of these poor people who have no rights and no other way to put food on their families tables!!

OK- off my soap box.  The raccoons visited us again last night but took only three stock so if they stick to just what they want to eat for dinner we will have enough left for our family when they come on Monday.  We want very much for the three little kids to be able to go to the garden and pick their own vegetables for dinner.   There will be blueberries for them to pick as there are still a lot of green ones on the bushes.  Both Colby and James love blueberries so it will be fun to watch them pick and eat the berries right from the bushes.  We will have to teach them not to try and eat the green ones as they don’t know about those.   Time now to cook dinner so have to run.  Have a good day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
