'Extreme torture' of farming when leaving the city to return to the countryside 15

Many people quickly draw a beautiful dream of `growing vegetables and raising chickens` for the picture of leaving the city and returning to their hometown.

Recently, people have been talking about leaving the city to return to the countryside, the forest, and the mountains.

During the social distancing period to prevent Covid-19 in 2020, I `hid` in Di Linh, Lam Dong, this place is 60km from Da Lat City.

I belong to the first generation of 9x.

In Binh Dinh, people grow two rice crops, from rice to corn, from corn to sweet potatoes, from sweet potatoes to peanuts, from peanuts to beans and vegetables.

The feeling of immersing yourself in cold water, stormy weather, reaching under the water to cut rice, just a gust of wind is enough to make your lips turn purple, your teeth chattering together, your body trembling.

Back to my story in Di Linh and my current agricultural work as follows: For decades now, my aunt has had to wake up at 5 a.m. and prepare breakfast for the whole family to go to work and her children to school.

The house is located along Highway 20, far from the fields, so to water the coffee, you have to get up at four in the morning, meaning `one sun, two dew`.

A hill with a slope of 30-45 degrees is very normal. Pulling the water pipe from the stream up the hill requires a few hours of `breathing` before reaching the coffee.

In the Central Highlands, every house grows coffee, pepper, avocado… Coffee care includes watering, fertilizing, and pruning branches.

In the countryside, there’s no way to go to coffee shops or sit on the computer on the weekends.

It’s been so hard all year round but I don’t have much money because I work for profit.

I come from a farming background, suffering from a young age was `chilling`, let alone many people who have lived in the city for many years racing to return to the forest and mountains.
