I've lived in the Midwest my entire life and am surrounded by fields and farms. During harvest seasons, a lot of farmers are spending day in and day out cultivating and cropping. It's a lot of work.
My sister, Sandy, is married to a farmer. Dean is usually gone from sun up to sundown to work the fields. She doesn't get a lot of alone time, or much quality time, with her man. But such is the life of a farmer's wife.
