Granny Teague

I came home tonight after picking up the CSA loot, and proceeded to snap beans for a vegetable soup. What a relaxing experience it is to snap beans - pop (1st end), pop (2nd end), pop (middle). This sound reminded me of Granny Teague, who every summer tirelessly took care of all of the cooking, sewing, canning, gardening, cleaning and rearing of all of us grandchildren. She would work in my uncle's chicken houses early in the morning and come back to fix me and my cousin breakfast on our summer vacation. She would then start on lunch - biscuits, ham, snap peas - maybe fried okra or squash depending on what was in the garden. Love you Granny.
