Phooey on these fancy pants farm stores. Back in my day, we made our own tools in our blacksmith shop. I once made the mistake of suggesting to Dad that we needed to purchase a new hoe. Oh, boy did he learn me better.

Phoghorn: Dad, I think the old hoe is worn out. What do you say one of us rides ol' Daisy down to the hardware store for a new one.

Dad: Balderdash! Do you know what they are sellin' hoes for in this town nowadays?

Phoghorn 50 cents.

Dad: 50 bloody cents. Do you know how hard it is to come up with 50 bloody cents?

Phoghorn: Uh, the neighbor paid me that much for fixing his plow last week.

Dad: Well if you can fix his plow, then you can sure 'nough make us a new hoe. Go rummage through that stash of wrought iron until you find a suitable piece. We'll have us a hoe in no time.

Produce and fruit Hy-Vee, ,back yard not big enough, thank goodness----- Remember when I was a young sprout on the farm how long the rows of green beans were, along with carrots, radishes and what ever dad could find for seed to put in the ground.

Westlake too. Their black gold organic potting soil is pretty good stuff.
