ostro_goth: (Gotland)
It's harvest time in Gotland -- the grain has already come in off the fields, but there are fruit and vegetables, to harvest and store and pickle and cook and dry, everybody is very busy.

Teja has come with Egil, to show him how everything works and how people grow food -- it is all very down-to-earth here. In Italy, he'll see trucks of olives and tanks full of wine, but here, there are buckets and baskets and pitch-forks.

The Gotland children are very happy to show little Egil everything; they love the little fellow. Of course they have all their own chores in this, but they proudly show off the chores as well.
