The Names of the fields on our farm
The Stubble field, The Well field, The Little rock, The Fan rock, The Big meadow, The Bog field, The Three cornered field, The Rushy hill, The cows' field, The Flat field, The Cabbage garden, Garvey's field and the Hay garden. It is called Garvey's field, because about fifty years ago, my father bought it off a man named Garvey for the grazing of cattle.
