Everyone is lending a hand at harvest time!  Here the leaves are going in to the curing barn.

A good crop will fill the entire barn, as seen here.  This was a relatively good harvest for the family.

A neighbor comes by to help with the harvest.  During this time, people got by with what they had, as can be seen by the overalls that are a bit too long.  These people certainly worked hard, though!
