"For a child that worked, you would probably only begin school around October and that would be middle or late October... sometimes middle November. I would not see some of my classmates before...probably two weeks before Christmas sometimes. That was how the work went. There were times when they were doing the peaches. Then there were times when they were doing the cotton. Then there was times when you had to get the fields ready. There were also times when you cut the barley. There was also wheat and all of that."
