9. And you wear nail varnish to hide the dirt under your nails.

11. Even though your garden is an absolute mess.

12. Your washing machine packs up every harvest because it gets blocked with corn and dust.


13. A lie in is anything past 5.30am.

14. When your S.O. tells you he'll be an hour, you expect him in five.

Something's bound to break down, which means he'll turn up covered in mud and grease. Oh, and he'll need you to fetch spares.

15. Which means you eat dinner alone at least twice a week.


17. The barn's leaky roof always gets fixed before your house's leaky roof. / Via

20. But mostly you take holidays in other agricultural areas, so that your spouse can spy on the techniques and methods of other growers and producers.


23. Grass stains are the least of your laundry worries.

24. But hey, at least you have a legitimate excuse to wear Hunter wellies.
