vegetable garden

 

Growing up in the rural South taught me several lessons. One of those lessons was that if you want to raise crops and eat the good of the land, you’ve got to cultivate the soil.

My parents were both born into large families just prior to the Great Depression. Dad was one of 15 siblings and Mom was number 11 of 12. In those days in the rural South, if you ate it, it was because you raised it or grew it on your own farm. So after my parents married and eventually bought their own land, a farm with its own garden spot was quite naturally a part of it.

My memories easily take me back to that garden.
