Ruth, Peter, and Alex finish their year on the Victorian Farm. With the failed hay harvest, the team looks to recover with the wheat harvest. They finish off their year celebrating the harvest with a feast.
Peter and Alex get to grips with Victorian technology in preparation of the wheat harvest. The harvester that was used had a device that helped tie wheat bundles and was invented by a Wisconsin farm hand. Ruth learns the art of plaiting straw stalks and discovers how addicting it can be. It was a simple skill that could make a farmer money.
Ruth also explores the impact of the Empire on the Victorian Kitchen. She uses curry mix to prepare the boys a meal. Peter arranges to have the cart they plan to use to haul the wheat in repaired since it was not used in decades.
They celebrate the end of the time on the Victorian Farm with a party.
