Total Blackout – STEPHANIE LEMOINE - DAY 21 (part 2)

STEPHANIE LEMOINE - DAY 21 (part 2)

When they exited the shopping center, Olivier and Stéphanie had their arms so full that they kept dropping boxes and clothes. Despite their struggles, they laughed like children, joking that they should have taken a cart.

They arrived around lunchtime and tried to be as discreet as possible to avoid being spotted by Marie. They stashed their treasure in a discreet corner of the property and went to find Mathieu, who was busy in a part of his field.

Normally, all the planting should have been done by now, but with all his tractors and other agricultural machinery out of order, everything had to be done by hand! The small team had been busy weeding and plowing Mathieu's fields, which covered several hectares! While a large part had been done by tractor with the help of a satellite guidance system before the blackout, there was still some work to be done for a good corn harvest. The grain had to be sown quickly to have a harvest before the cold weather set in.

Without the help of machines, he had to transport the grain to his plot with a wheelbarrow! They were far from the comfort Mathieu had enjoyed until then thanks to his gigantic loan. The good news was that with this crisis, there were no more banks, no more money, and therefore no more debt!

Before the blackout, he had been under pressure and was almost ready to sign the papers to sell his land, probably to build a parking lot and a new commercial area.

According to him, if the weather stayed good, they could harvest by mid-November.

But his worries were great. He was afraid that the weather would not be good, that disease would kill his crop prematurely, that his plants (very water-intensive) would die of thirst during the summer, and that hungry looters would attack him and the fruit of his labor, their labor.

Mathieu was relieved to be able to count on the help of Stéphanie, Marie, and was reassured to see Olivier and his wife Emma join him on the farm. Their daughter, Zoé, was still too young to participate in the work. Then there were Jérôme and his wife Léa, as well as their children: Baptiste, Kévin, Justine, Sylvie, and the young Lucas. Not everyone could help, but everyone did their best, motivated by the promise of a good meal.

For the moment, the increase in the size of the team posed no problems, but even a slight bad harvest could have very serious consequences. They depended mainly on stocks and what they could find around the farm.
