My wife's parent's home is on a large piece of property in Rutherfordton, NC.
Each year they say they are going to scale back,
but they still manage to plant and grow way more vegetables
then they could possibly eat themselves.
They do enjoy it, and with canning a freezing they hardly ever have to buy veggies.
However, it sure keeps them very busy during the summer.
Unfortunately, this has been a very dry summer.
It ha been a struggle to keep the crops watered.
About 3-4 times a day, Amy's dad takes the tractor down to the
spring that runs along the edge of their property.
At the "Oasis" there is a heavy duty pump to fill up the water totes.
