Scope and content

"My earliest recollection of Farming goes right back to the early 1940s when my Father used to take me, aged 4, out all day on the Tractor to give my Mum a break. Was I that much of a nuisance even then? There were a lot of Horses working on the farms in those days and I always remember the problems in trying to get the horses in first thing in the morning as the carters got them harnessed ready for the day’s work." This is the first paragraph in a really interesting account of life on a farm from 1937 to September 2011 when Don wrote this account.
