散文:放水琐记

Instead of plowing thousands of rakes, it is better to insert it early. This is a word of popular West Road dam in the 1970s. At that time, the Yuehe River Basin of Hanbin, Tian Chengfang Road, Lane, Wo Ye Qianli, Yuehe Yoos, long water flowing, Tianbi water green, and flowing cheerfully. On both sides of the river, the wheat waves rolled, and the turtle dove desperately called “the sun in the sunny day” on the treetops. The season has begun.

On the eve of the be sickle harvested, the farmers grinded the sickle in their own courtyard dams. In order to save effort, they grinded the sickle very sharply, and each sickle was made of bright and bright. Each man has three treasures of straw shoes, towels, and tea cups, as well as burdens and straw ropes. The clever women at home were also very busy in the busy days of Sanxia, ​​almost even axis. When Gastrodiac was lit, I got up, and came to the vegetable gardens who stayed in the ground. They took the pepper, eggplant, cucumber, tomato and other farmhouses, and folded back and went home to steamed steamed buns. He also prepared a thick wine and a valley wine for men. They were considerate of the hard work of men, sweating every day, and refreshing the food to improve the food. The men in the family came out in front of the Buddha. They walked into the wheat land while the summer was cool, and was instantly drowned by the huge wheat field. The gap slowly appeared, and from the east to the west, this is the “masterpiece” described by the cutting wheat people on the earth. After cutting from this end, we could see each other when they saw their own traces. The men in the Mai Tian came out of the Mai Di and gathered together, sitting on Tiankanba, and respecting each other, tea, and sharing dry food. Each of them was covered with straw and wheat on their heads and body. They were wet in short gowns and sweaty people. Grunting with the black -footed large -footed tea leaves thirst, the palm of the palm of his hand had a thick cocoon, and the iron smell of the sickle was also stained with a sickle. “Starting”, some people shouted, the men immediately put down the tea cup in their hands, and walked into Mai Di to cut wheat.

At eight o’clock in the morning, the warm sun came out, and the wheat land was already golden, and the man who cut the wheat was tired. One acre of wheat was almost cut. The picture of the harvest. At this time, the women who delivered the rice came, they picked up steaming, oil cakes, porridge, sauerkraut soup, and garlic, picotin, cucumber, etc., and the neighbors of Shangcun were surrounded by them. After wiping a few times, I started eating. At this time, the women bowed their bodium and tied the wheat. The rows of rows of codes were neat, and the wheat ears were all facing up. In the sake of pushing the cup and changing the cup, the punching sound is endless, and after the rice is full, they shake their bodies to work in the farm. There are only green rice fields in my mind.

After the harvesting of the wheat, the irrigation and transplantation began again. At that time, the irrigation of hometown was water with Henghui Canal. Many years of habits were used up and down, rotation irrigation was continued for water release. , Difficulty in the lower reaches of the village, there is no way to do it. Each time the water conservancy officer and the cadres of the village group are arranged, they always leave a part of the water in the lower reaches. When the water flows to the downstream fields, almost the channel is dry. After the water release staff and the village group cadres leave, the upstream people will block the downstream water. After the upstream is full, it is used to put water in the lower reaches. Often it is green upstream and a yellow downstream. The time of transplanting is strong, the early insertion is stable and the production is high, and the low -end output is low in loss. When the lower reaches of the water, each household is a channel to keep the water on the upstream and night during the day, night and downstream. When you encounter the leak when you keep the water, you jump into the water to repair the hole. The mud water is covered with the whole body. Shoushui people jumped into the water to evacuate. Sometimes they encountered the blood flow of thorns, and sometimes encountered a poisonous snake. One year, when a team leader in the village dredged the weeds at night, the thigh was bitten by a poisonous snake. The thighs could not walk on the day, and the condition worsened. Long poison injury. Since then, when people keep the water to clear the channels of weeds, try to evacuate with long picks and iron shovels to avoid the attack of poisonous snakes. When my house was put in water, my parents were gentle, enthusiastic about people, and did not fight for water. My father and elder brother slept on the channel with the bedding. The mosquito bite at night. After the water was placed in the field, my father had to hire cattle to rake fields. The villagers behind the door came to help. The division of labor of cooking, pulling seedlings, pulling lines, and transplanting seedlings were clear, and all of them were sweating. After inserting seedlings, the family cooks a good table, took out aged native wine, and drank seedlings. The villagers drinking the darkness is more lively than the Spring Festival. The seedlings were dried in the field in less than a day or two.

Several large households in the village found business opportunities in irrigation. They paid their own channels to make a deep machine well next to the channels, supporting water pumping equipment. When the summer is inserted in summer, people sell water and sell water, and the profits are rich. Many villagers buy high -priced water irrigation fields in order to avoid the entanglement of the water, but they are helpless. When our family is also at a critical moment, the villagers with poor economic conditions in the village can only wait until they insert all the seedlings, and they are irrigated by themselves. In June and July, the season with the most precipitation was ushered in. When the rice plant had grown to 6 leaves, the days when the water guarded was over.

Nowadays, no one is willing to plant wheat and rice in West Roadba. Young far away from other places and work in the city to make a living. The money earns a year is more cost -effective than planting food. When eating noodles, I buy it in the supermarket. Life is convenient and fast. I can no longer see the scene of wheat waves and like rice. However, after life returns to the truth, people still look forward to the rural rural fireworks. Happy days of water.
