Description: 

At some point on his flight across Yoknapatawpha, Joe spends the night "lying in a haystack" beside a "farm house" (332). After watching the men of the farm eat breakfast and depart for the fields, Joe goes to "the kitchen door" to ask the woman there what day it is. She does not tell him, telling him instead to "get away from here!" (332). The "shallow ditch at the edge of a plowed field" where Joe falls asleep is presumably part of this farm, or at least very near it (333).
