Really good article on Mother Earth News - http://www.motherearthnews.com/modern-homesteading/food-independence-zm0z11zhun.aspx

"When the shelves of the root cellar had been filled with canned corn, beans, pickles and chow-chow, Dad would buy 50 pounds of red beans and 50 pounds of white beans. It was Mom’s custom to have a pot of beans on the stove all winter long. Anyone who showed up at our back door was always offered a bowl of beans."

That was a good story, Thanks.

My grandfather was raised on a big family farm during the depression, he said there was no change on the farm at all.
