Variety—Thy Name Is Vegetable

I feel real smug when I saunter past the produce counter in the super market these days. Like Granny, I have a growing produce department of my own, but unlike her, I go around in wash and wear slacks-and have to hunt a pail every time I go out to gather vegetables.

Granny used her apron for this; the same one she used to cry into, to bring in apples from the orchard, to gather eggs or pick up wood chips for the old kitchen range. So I'm not sure that progress is all to the good.
