Farm Life Series
Of great neighbors and green manure
JL the farmer was not yet finished with the olive harvest despite having had plenty of warning and I was becoming desperate to get the seeds into the ground up against the end of March deadline.
I had almost given up when the neighbor said that the tractor was out of commission and the ground too sodden after the last rains. I had spent around 140€ on seeds that would now have to sit there until the Autumn or the next spring.
