On the way from Bralostia, a large village near Bîlta village, to the south east, on the way to one of the small villages in the area, Dr Gheorghe met this old woman who was working in the fields, sowing plants in the ancient way. Step by step, the old woman walked along the furrow and made from time to time a hole in the ground using a long heavy wooden stick made from acacia wood. After making the hole, she put the plant in the hole, and covered it with the stick. It is a very ancient method of planting here, not seen very often.

Tool
In a small village called Ciocane, part of the large village called Bralostita, which has a population of over 3500, this ancient agricultural wooden tool was found leaning against a fence, made with acacia branches. It is a harrow, used by dragging behind a horse or an ox, to level the ground and to cover seed which has been planted in the furrows. The tool is probably remade every year of freshly cut branches, since it is a flimsy construction, and is needed only once or twice a year, and the branches used would become dry and brittle and lighter by the next season.
