SF Drabble #104 “Farming on Procyon IV”

I’m thinking of taking out a loan from First Colonial and buying one of those automated harvesting machines. Lord knows it’s hard getting an honest day’s work out of the Procs. They have some sort of damn fool religion where they drop whatever they’re doing every three hours, face B, and pray. Then, there’s this virus that they all seem to get at the same time. Doc tells me it’s just the common cold, or at least it was when we brought it here. Seems to be getting worse every season.

Yup, gonna be getting an automated harvester, I think.
