The Way We Were Wednesday
I have written about the family funny farm, honey farm. It was a large scale farm. We shipped honey out in 55-gallon barrels, by the tractor-trailer load. This picture was take some time in the mid-60's, the largest crop we ever had. The oversized two car garage was full and we stored full barrels outside, the packing company couldn't haul them away fast enough. As I recall my parents netted something like $21,000 that year, about twice what they had paid for a house a five years earlier. The following year, we had a crop failure, barely filling half of the garage with barrels. That is farming.
Did you spend time on a farm as a child?
