Green Giant….

On our piece of land we have corn and lima beans…the beans needed to be picked and so they were….500lbs in 3 hours by 3 people.  Jordan and Philip dug out the stalks and bean plants as we went along.  There are just as many beans being picked today…hopefully this is the last day.  Limas are a good price as the Catholics that celebrate Lent substitute them here for meat.

“There is only one rule by which to judge if God is near us or is far away – the rule that God’s word is giving us today: everyone concerned for the hungry, the naked, the poor, for those who have vanished in police custody, for the tortured, for prisoners, for all flesh that suffers, has God close at hand.  We have the ability, we have the means, and we have the capacity to eliminate hunger from the face of the earth. We need only the will.”

– John F. Kennedy, Former United States President
