Freda's Thoughts "Being a Potato Head!"

Freda's family worked together on planting and harvesting.  That was pretty much a way of life, during the Great Depression.  She was given a great opportunity, as her family trusted her with a portion of the work. 
Good work ethics can be learned at any age; but if you begin early, you'll enjoy a lifetime of satisfaction in whatever you do.
Children should always be supervised, to make certain they are doing the task properly and safely.  They should be given encouragement and constructive criticism.  They should also have the incentive of a reward as a goal.
When you enjoy a job, you will probably make a better effort at it.
If you learn how to do your best, the reward is in the doing; all else added to that is a serendipity!
It has been said, that "Good hard work, never hurt anyone!"  That is usually true!

Freda wanted me to let you know, that they planted their crops on plots of about 1/2 acre each.  They grew them in manner known as "drought farming"; where you'd let the crops grow on their own, without regular watering or much attention.  They would have to mound the dirt up around each plant, as you should do for potatoes.  When the harvest time came, they would all work together to get the crop in.  There is an old saying, "Many hands, make light the work".  It is still true today, if we implement it!
