We go to market on Monday's and Wednesday's to sell our crop and today I remembered the camera! So come along and see how it happens at the warehouse!
All lined up and waiting their turn!
Weighing and grading!
Nothing goes to waste!
Jessie has brought her tobacco to market today!
Moving Miss jessie's over to the sold piles! Hope she got top price!
It's our turn!
Coming down the scale!
Price decision makers!!
Keep it coming!
THIS is TOP price! Thank you!!
Last bale for us today! We are leaving happy!
Waiting for the big rigs!
See you next Monday!!
When I went in to the office I was hoping to see something beautiful that one of the owners wives had promised to bring. And it was there!
This afghan was crocheted by the grandmother of the warehouse owners using the twine that they used years ago in hanging the tobacco leaves in the curing barns!
Notice the spool of twine at the young woman's feet.
Photo found here.
And with that, you have had your NC history lesson for the day! :)
