10 Autumn is a Harvest Time

Autumn is a Harvest Time

Posted on November 17, 2014 by tim


We know that fall is harvest time, and soldiers also know it. In the Soviet Union, it was a common tradition to send soldiers, students of colleges and universities, and others to help pick the crops. However, these are not photos from the Soviet years, but from 2014.

    Are those pictures from an ex soviet republic or from Russia? Because we don’t have any information if these soldiers are Russians or soldiers of another country. Thanks.

    With all this cabbage we could have corned beef and cabbage, if we had some beef.

    This reminds me of a story a Russian friend of mine told me about harvest time living in Uzbekistan. He told me that as a student they were required to go out and help harvest the cotton crop. I thought that was terrible, but he said no, no one tried to get out of it because it was so much fun. It was like one big party at quitting time. Tons of beer and vodka drinking, pot smoking and fun with the girls!

    How do we know this cabbage isn’t for the army base? You need a lot of borsch to feed all those soldiers.

    It took place in October 2013 in Blagoveshchensk city, Amur oblast, Russia. 500 tons of cabbage arrived as a help to sufferers of the floods. Humanitarian aid was detrained by military cadets. More info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_China%E2%80%93Russia_floods
