Well done Dave!

Your title is finely crafted.

Re: Not eggs

My guess is pears.

Not eggs?

Then what??

WORK!

She appears (rightly so) proud of all the work she's done.

A knockout

Her smile is captivating. What a beauty!

Maters

Maters, taters, beans and corn! Along with an assortment of pickles, peaches, beets and I think eggs at the top. Yes they canned eggs for the winter when the hens stopped laying.

[Those are not eggs. - Dave]
