Hi, as a young girl I grew up on a farm in Missouri and every summer we planted and weeded and maintained a large garden. We planted many rows of vegetables, potatoes and flowers in our garden. I remember how we relished the new potatoes and oh those strawberries.
We had several kinds of fruit trees which along with the vegetables from the garden was canned and placed in the cave for our food during the winter. My grandfather would hitch up the two horses to an old and I mean old wagon and we with our buckets and straw hats would cross the creek, go up in the shrubs and trees and pick the largest black berries you ever saw. Summer was very exciting and I loved the gardening.
