Excerpt from ‘Farming the Apocalypse’
[I learnt] to appreciate the wild grasses and flowers consuming fields that had once been mown ; to work my way through blackberry brambles with a brush axe, in the thickest spots, and on hands and knees with heavy clippers and loppers. Working at ground level, I learnt to hear the quiet : the gentle sounds that the curved blade of a sickle (the baby cousin of the scythe) made slicing through canes, the rustle and scurry of rabbits and mice through the underbrush ; the buzz and whirr of bees ; the angry calls of birds displeased at my intrusion on their world — and once, the unmistakable chatter of a rattlesnake.
