As amazing as it may seem, here in South Carolina, we are not too far from planting our onions, kale, lettuce, broccoli, kohlrabi, etc. I spent a few days last week spreading old cow manure.

In getting ready for planting, I again consulted Practical Farming for the South by B.F. Bullock 1946. This is a great book. Not confined to planing, but also to livestock and philosophical about the importance of rural society to the survival of our nation.

Last night I read this opening ode aloud to Mrs. Curley and my oldest sons. All were moved by the truth it portrayed.

Oremus pro invicem!
