Here’s a sample from Rooster Stew:

Delia’s job is to hoe in rows all down the slope, so water can get to the chokecherry and sandcherry and buffalo berry and grass, which have shed their blossoms in favor of foliage.  Last week they burned and cleared the ditch.  Yesterday they put in checks so the water can be channeled to the bushes and grass.  All spring long they have been hacking weeds, scattering grass seeds, planting new bushes and saplings to get ready for the water.  Today the water is here.
