Agriculture isn't all about big tractors and expensive equipment...or endless acres of crops.
Our small operation requires a WHOLE LOT of hand-work. And as half of the workforce , I can't tell you how many times someone says...
"Hey, gimme a hand here!"
So, taking it literally ('cause I'm a pretty literal minded sort)
Here is a somewhat "modified" Wordless Wednesday featuring HANDS. (namely, MY hands) in a small sampling of my jobs here on the hill.
Don't be misled...the Boss (and his hands) does more than his fair share. I just don't follow him around with a camera all day.

My grandmother molded my thinking about lending a hand, and having "capable hands". To truly appreciate how...please read THIS.
...and don't worry...I DO occasionally WASH my hands! (promise)
And, a special thanks to the Boss for some of the shots.
