You r grt. Whenever I try to do some farm work,that too very minimal work ,
I get tired soon.
This is because of my sedentary life style and travel to my native place
over 300 KMs.
Never had I had the luxury of working in / with nature leisurely , with
much time at my disposal.
Hope I get that opportunity in the near future.
