View of a Palestinian farmer and his donkey and a coworker plowing a fertile field in the Hill Country of Judah.  Clearly visible is the very fertile “terra rossa” (red soil) that is so characteristic of the Hill Country.

This farmer is plowing in the late summer and is preparing his field for the planting of grain crops in the fall.  In the field above the farmer and donkey summer melon crops are growing.

Note how the farmer has cleared his fields of stones and has used them for “fencing” although the large limestone bolder on the right side of the image has been left in the field.
