It’s good for parents to teach their children to make and build things. It is likewise good to teach their children to grow things, such as farmed vegetables and the like.
No matter the substances or the well being and abundance of any family there will always be good times and hard times. In the time of, or at the beginning of World War II, it was suggested that families begin what was called a victory garden in their yards to grow vegetables, in town or country. At this time in 2015 there are very few farms and dairy barns in Macon County and other countries. Recently, there has been numerous business investments, some of which are not on a solid foundation. It is like sowing seed into the wind.
The Bible verse, Hosea 8:7 communicates. “For they have sown to the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”
Many years ago, the Franklin High School had an agriculture class about farming. But it is gone, where did it go? “Gone with the wind.”
