Hey Ya'll! I went with my Daddy on November 11th for a Veteran's Service at his church. It was nice but he is ready to get into his overalls once he gets back home. (I wrote about my Dad's memories of Berlin if you want to go back and read about him. Of course, I have written of him before, you may go back and read all the posts about him, if you like!) That is a photo of him posing with his new dog, Bandy. And the photos here are of turnip greens and collard greens that he has grown. He enjoys this garden and he also shares the bounty with others! I think that the darker color greens are the turnips...or is it the lighter color greens. I'm not sure, I will see my Dad on Thanksgiving and ask him. He will throw his head back in laughter and shaking his head, he will say, "WHAT, you don't know which is which?" I will have to admit that I am not sure!
My Dad loves country music and he really loves a song that tells a story...so I have one here for you from several years ago. I might not know a lot about farming but I do know that the corn would not be that green if the turnips were ready to sell. In other words, turnips are in the ground now ready to be harvested, and the cornstalks in the field would be brown and ready to cut down. Also, you know it is an old video since the girl would have a GPS instead of a map!
My son who is a big music fan will laugh at me for putting this song on here, but I like it. Yes, it has stereotypes galore, but just go with it It reminds me of my Dad and being out in the country. And hey, I am a Georgia Girl, even if I do get my greens mixed up!
