Beauty? I only see work, work, work
As wildfires ravage Russia’s wheat crop and send world prices to record highs, there’s an early harvest this year in Ireland.
To prepare, Mick Wall, a mechanic on my cousin’s farm in Southeast Ireland, has been tuning up a 30-year old New Holland 1530 combine harvester.
He may call it a “small model”, but to me looks like a World War II battle tank and sounds like the Normandy invasion.
Amid the grinding metal blades, however, I saw the beauty of metal worn by wheat.
“Beauty?”, Mick exclaimed with his strong Irish accent. “There is no beauty in this machine. I only see work, work, work.”
