MORNING SESSION: Antonio & Ermelinda’s Field (yield: 36 sacks of potatoes each weighing 30-40 kilos); Breakfast; Our field (yield: 18 sacks); two trips on top of trailor full of potatoes to unload as respective houses; eat, drink & be merry at theirs as Ermalina effortlessly magics up a three course meal; go home and sleep it off.
AFTERNOON SESSION: This was a team of thirteen and tremendous fun, if not extremely hot. Sadly, I didn’t take my camera!
As ever it was a fun-packed day, filled with laughter, food, alcohol, tractor rides, sweltering physical work – and then you have to carry the sacks of potatoes up at least two flights of stairs! Back-breaking! I still don’t see how they can get through more than eighteen sacks of potatoes though!
