Harvesting Vegetables in a Thunderstorm, Wilcox County
As someone on my Facebook page suggested, few people realize how vegetables get to market. Of course we know in South Georgia, but the wider world often has no idea.

Guyton House, Owensboro
Sidney McWhorter writes: This is an old tenant house on my farm that we refer to as the Guyton house because we had an elderly couple that lived there until their deaths, who helped my daddy, J. B. McWhorter, Sr. farm. I use it as a storage house now but do not want to tear it down. We lived there when our house was being remodeled in 1958.
