I believe I hold a world record for working 16 hours per day for 30 years. At times I worked 24 hours. I collected milk, I got up at 5 and returned home at one o'clock, after lunch I worked on farm business. I could have found a job working at the post office or become a civil servant, I had the chance back in the day.
But I never liked it, that wasn't the sort of life I wanted. Enzo works hard, when harvest time comes, he starts at 5 in the morning and stops at midnight. He works hard but he has one big fault: he spends too much. He buys and buys and buys... I help him with the more commercial part and with the bookkeeping, but don't ask me to climb onto the new electronic combine harvester with all those buttons and knobs.
Agriculture has changed and I find it hard to keep up with all these changes. For instance, he's spent a great deal of money for this machine.
Enzo admits it:
I got it 20 days ago. We've almost finished assembling it with optionals. Every day the mechanic comes by and we assemble the various parts. It's taking a long time. Let's hope everything turns out all right, we want to start using it soon.
It's hi-tech. Big, powerful, innovative with a retractable bar for driving on the road, so we won't have the hassle of assembling and disassembling parts. It allows us to travel and work safely.
It's a harvesting machine. It harvests the wheat, separates it, collects the grains of wheat in a container and then puts it onto the lorry that takes it to storehouses.
