A good day. The men folks
worked on their tobacco all day.

I washed a little this morning.
Josie got dinner. She had
croped [?] greens and beets, onions &
potatoes and tomatoes and pies.
It was all good but
worked her two hard.

This evening I went to
George Blairs. The girls were
seeding cherries. Denia & Mrs
was gone to see
Ethel Worsham. I come by
Carries. Josie was there. We seeded
some cheries.

What are "cropped greens"? As opposed to wild greens, perhaps?

Neil Brumfield

Aunt Mabel may need to be consulted on this one but I think you're correct and the cropped greens would have been turnip greens as opposed to creasy salat or poke salat that was picked out of the "wild".
