Excerpt: "My mother and her siblings grew up raising sugar beets . in Fort Morgan, Colorado- on one of the six million family farms that provided food for the rest of the nation. Grandma sold eggs from their chickens and cream from the dairy cow to buy fabric to make school dresses for Mom and her sisters. Grandma also tended the large vegetable garden that fed her family along with the chickens and cows they raised."
