It won't take me long to harvest my crop.
This is it.
A few scrawny tomatoes.
I only have this because someone gave me two plants, so I stuck them in here.
See the nice red tomatoes at the top?
I got them from my mother-in-law. She grows wonderfully delicious tomatoes.
See the two on the bottom?
They came from my plant.
That is why I do not grow vegetables.
While joking about my vegetable “harvest”, I got to thinking about generations before us.
Prior to the modern conveniences we all enjoy, few of us realize the sweat and toil every woman went through to feed her family. All that picking, cleaning, chopping, cooking, canning........hundreds of jars to haul to the root cellar.
I, for one, am very glad to be living in this era, when harvesting for me means walking down 4 stairs to pick two tomatoes. I don't have to worry about cleaning and canning bushel loads to have food for the winter. If I chose to do this as a hobby, I can. But few women today MUST do it to prevent family starvation.
We live in a wonderful era.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
