thanks adriana, from aagje.
Love this puzzle aagje
Thanks Jack and fodus - Most farms do have their irrigation systems in use (especially 2 years ago it was needed alot) and most barns are close to irrigation ponds.
nice set today aggie!
A few years back when we were in Tennesee, our friends had a tabacco barn that they used every year. The law was that you had to have a pool of water nearby for firefighting emergencies.
Thanks chickie...got some good ones coming your way - one in particular I think you'll like - will try and post today -
Love the puzzle and comments aggie. Thank you.
Thanks patsquire, warbler and PG - The tobacco industry is still thriving here. I'll try and remember to bring my camera to give you a glimpse of the newer ones. Lots of farmers don't know what to do with these old ones. As for wacky, just like everywhere, we have had our fair share of raids. Those usually happen tho later when the corn, wheat and tobacco get taller and they can spot them from the air via planes. Of course abandoned buildings too- I do see a hydro pole right beside to the right.
They cure some wacky tabacee in these now.
You come up with the coolest stuff, aggie. Thanks.
I've seen some that were longer than these and every other tall, vertical wall board was hinged at the top so it could be swung out about a foot at the bottom, providing a way to circulate air in controlled ways. Must have smelled wonderful inside!
To hang tobacco to dry naner. These buildings are now a piece of history in this area and they dot the countryside. Newer buildings are now being used.
aggie, do you know how these were used?
I've never seen any bldgs like this before....but maybe it's because I don't live where they grow tobacco. Very intgeresting aggie. Thanks
