Handtorfstich

"Aufgekastelte" meaning "stacked up" to dry... the shoveled out pieces of peat used to make up the landscape here. People used to cover their own fuel needs with the won peat or even just sold it to beer brewers to make some extra money. This very tedious usage of fossile fuel is hardly found nowadays. (Photo: R.
