Der høstes

Det er en stor glæde at se støvskyerne fra mejetærskeren, der larmer henover markerne, der står så godt som nogensinde.

Path, field and harvester

Man kan lige akkurat se mejetærskeren, selv om den er langt væk

Men man skal ikke altid bare glæde sig over en god høst, for priserne presses ned, og det var en af grundene – den væsentligste! – til børskrakket i Wall Street i oktober 1929; priserne røg ned og ruinerede først planteavlere, og bagefter de erhverv, som følger af landbruget (og det er stort set alle). Fra Wikipedia:

The “Roaring Twenties”, the decade following World War I that led to the crash, was a time of wealth and excess. Building on post-war optimism, rural Americans migrated to the cities in vast numbers throughout the decade with the hopes of finding a more prosperous life in the ever-growing expansion of America’s industrial sector. While American cities prospered, however, the overproduction of agricultural produce created widespread financial despair among American farmers throughout the decade, which was later blamed as one of the key factors that led to the 1929 stock market crash.
