German-Russian Women

German-Russian Women - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
These German-Russian women harvesting grain in the "Frucht-garten". They are in the grain fields with their hand-made wooden rakes and harvesting equipment. These women would be the mothers and unmarried girls helping their husbands and single men in raking up the loose sheaves of grain. In some cases they would need to use scythes (short bladed cutting knives) to capture independent blades of grain left standing, so as not to waste anything. On the other hand, grandmothers would be back in the village houses cooking, baking and baby-sitting the smaller children. When it was time for harvesting, it was necessary "for all hands on deck" to help bring in the harvest, as the days were short and there was much work to be done.
