Mark's Stories: "Food just comes up out of the ground"

 There is a story in my family, about one of my aunts, now passed away. She grew up in in a big east coast city, and then during the Depression era she met this nice Mormon boy, and moved with him into the far beyond of deep rural southern Colorado. And then wrote back to her family in the big city, who were concerned for her welfare. Her letter basically said "I've been eating very well! Did you know? Food just comes up out of the ground! And all you have to do is be willing to work!" This entry was originally posted at https://fallenpegasus.dreamwidth.org/862640.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
