The primary function of the Polovdnista is to look after the fields, but she can also play tricks on peasants and their children. This harvest fairy commands wild herbs to move away from useful herbs, insects to stop their damage, wind and hail not to damage harvests. If she is in a bad mood, a polovdnitsa can attack isolated peasants and lazy drunks who fall asleep in their fields instead of plowing. One of its peculiarities would be to change size according to the growth of the plants to be harvested: she returns to the size of a seed after harvest. This fairy symbolizes the need to keep plants healthy and to respect the pace of the Earth.
