Default tough turf

this clip brought back memories of my childhood when my uncles who cut the turf for the winter in this way , all the kids would have to stack the turf for it to dry and turn it the next day , we spent most of the summer days working in hot feilds my uncles were strong men , i rem they used to leave our bottles of drink tied on a rope in the dips they cut out to keep it cold as the bog water would fill into the cut out dips , we even swam in them lol , i most loved the trip home at the end of summer wit the turf up on a big trailer pulled by the tractor , and we were allowed sit on top , our job to watch we didnt loose to much turf off the back , it was such simple fun , , thanks for helping bring back those memories ,, deirdre
