June: The hay is harvested. A scythe is used to cut it, and the families help by making little piles of hay. These are turned daily so the grass dries and turns into hay. July/August: The fallow field is ploughed. The crops in the other fields are harvested. Barley and wheat are cut with a sickle and have to be dried before storing or the grain will go bad. The carts are loaded high and the crops are brought in from the fields and stored in the lofts and in the lord’s grain barn. November: The pigs are turned Into the Woods to fatten up on acorns. The grain is threshed (beaten to separate the grain from stalks) in the barns. December: Most of the pigs and some of the other animals are butchered. There is a feast where the peasants eat fresh meat. The rest of the meat is salted and smoked so that it will keep edible through the winter months. January: Work is done preparing for the coming year. Hedges and fences are mended. Work is done round the house. Tools are fixed. Ale is brewed. February: Ploughing is started. The ground is cold and muddy. March: Ploughing is finished. Weeding is done. April/May: The sheep have their lambs, and are turned out to graze in the fallow field. Weeding continues in the other two fields
