Fixing the tractor.

In summer: popato field and hay,

in winter - firewood,

tractor was more than a precious treasure.

Gas they got from the village,

in canisters, on horseback,

for the little money that they made by selling extra livestock in Fall.

they also bought flour, sugar, salt.

Thta's about it!

 

It was very sad, when in 1991,

the government,

not helping such farmers one tiny bit,

sent out a message

that now they start

collecting TAXES from them!!!
