Shane finished scything the oat field. It's in nice big stacks for feeding livestock "in the sheath" during winter. Its the old-fashioned way...also known as "don't own a big threshing machine and don't want to make more work for myself" method of harvesting grain.
It's lovely living in a painting. Cue the mushroomed straw-stacks, the smiling children, the stormclouds gathering, and the chickens scratching up loose oats.
