The best home remedy for the 2nd and subsequent days of hard labor is to get up and go again even when you don't feel up to it. Sore muscles just get more sore when you stay in bed but loosen up after about an hour of movement. Watkins liniment has been a staple for farm labor as long as I can remember and can usually be bought at a farm store such as Southern States or Tractor Supply.

I have had my turn in a tobacco field and barn too, but I did not think it was near as bad as bailing and stacking hay and unloading in the barn. All that in the hot sun, all sweaty, and those itchy seeds and grasses sticking to you.

It is pretty much a one man job anymore since most hay is rolled and moved around with a fork on the tractor and the rich guys even have a/c on the tractors.

One year I wrote Santa a long detailed letter concerning how amazingly good I had been all year and how much I would appreciate the following:
One cowboy hat,
one pair of cowboy boots,
one pair of rawhide gloves,
a cowboy rifle,
two cowboy pistols with white handles in a brown gun belt,
and 50 foot of rope.
(I dont know why I thought I might need 50 foot of rope)
I even included the pages everything but the rope could be found on in the SR Christmas catalog.
I woke up Christmas morning and there they were under the tree.
I was one happy little cowboy.
For me it was an easy bake oven. I had visions of all the baked goods I would make for friends and family. Who knew a lightbulb and some cake batter could be so fun?

Yeah that's exactly right and that's just what the young man needs.

This will ruin my image but I was actually a real tomboy when I was young. Hated dolls and such. I wanted a bow and arrow. A real one!

That's not an image ruin'r. The most fun I ever had was with a tomboy girl. She could pee higher on the barn than I could. LOL

For many years a trip to the county fair included a walk around the 4-H/FFA exhibits of soybeans, corn and that ole baccer. We even had a smsll tobacco base for several years. This year when I walked around a local county fair farm exhibits, it was all corn! Seemed so strange not to see tobacco! It just isn't raised in these here parts!
Many years ago my father in law was part of a group that traveled to Canada to teach them about raising tobacco. Canadian tobacco?

@Anne....It's been awful humid here lately with just enough rain and sunshine to keep it that way with mid-90 degree temp. So for your trip I hope your A/C is in good order on your car. How far down are you go'n, deep in the delta or on to coon-arse (Cajun) country? Love that music but not Zydico!

Tobacco is still grown around here but just not as much as in prior times. In the flatter areas, I am seeing large acreage of corn nearly as far as one can see. The hill country (where small tobacco bases could be grown in the bottom land) has just returned to woods and forests or pasture land.

Many of the old tobacco barns are in bad shape and falling down and the lumber being reused such as I have done with my homestead addition interior walls. Some of that lumber is so old and seasoned that it cannot be nailed without pre-drilling.

Just last night on the way out to dinner with my friend, I saw several acres of what looked like Morning Glory blooms. I did not understand that unless it was some kind of winter cover crop or something for cattle feed.

Gulfport, five minutes from the beach. Oh the heat and humidity. A/C don't fail me now!
We once lived in Louisiana Cajun country. Very interesting language, culture, and music. Regional music, even zydico, I love in small doses.
Mississippi Man, hope you stay cool today!

Good Morning, bird threaders! It's chilly this am and the kids were wishing for jackets as they left for school!

It's not easy using old lumber. That pre-drilling gets old and there's always a possibility of hitting a hidden nail. In the end though it gives a person a real sense of accomplishment ( and a personal acquaintance with each and every nail)
. Morning glory fields? Would love to see them in full bloom! Hope you enjoyed your meal last night!

I lived in deep Cajun country too. I miss the culture and the people. The first day of cool fall weather is still gumbo day in my house!

I was in Gulfport right after Katrina, nothing left along the beach except debris including a McDonald's twisted golden arch but no McD's and no Big Macs.

While traveling near Lake Charles, I heard on the radio that the PTA was hosting a possum dinner, all you could eat for $2. I thought it was a joke until I passed the school. I saved my $2. LOL

I have a friend from Thailand that makes jokes about baked possum and hillbillies every time I talk to him. I had him and his lovely south korean wife over for dinner one evening. My date had made them some fried rabbit from a few that I had been blessed to get the day before. They smacked their lips and devoured every bite of that rabbit. When he finnaly asked what it was I said...why that was baked possum Tao... You should have seen his face.
I shouldn't have fessed up that it was really rabbit, but I did.
