Stubble and Heath
Stubble refers to the stumps or bottoms of harvested grasses or herb plants that are left in the soil. Stubble is usually dried.
Heath is any shrubby evergreen plant of wet acid soils. Examples are blueberry and heather.
In this context, the stubble and heath were the leftovers from the people's crops, such as wheat and oats.
