Produce(d) On A Farm



Living on a farm meant more than a long bus ride to school each day; and black dirt meant more than messy shoes after a spring rain. Rich soil, the foundation of plentiful harvests. Potatoes, peas, green beans, and corn. Tomatoes, carrots, onions, and squash. More fresh produce than one family could consume in a season. Thankfully, canning and freezing what we couldn’t consume meant we had “fresh” produce long into the winter.
