In the summer it was completely  different, as the other children would be there then and Floy pretty well took over the cooking.  The fresh vegetables were in, we would go out  in the afternoon and pick enough vegetables for the next .day.   No refrigeration so  no left overs could be saved to eat ourselves but nothing was wasted.  We fed about two dozen cats and about three dogs.  Anything that they didn’t eat was poured together into what we called “slop” for the hogs. The hogs ate anything.  Sometimes we had to cook extra for the animals.

  1. Cook extra for the animals! Now that would be strange. Hogs will eat pretty much anything – including the one who feeds them – so no reason to cook for them.
