I’m a country girl. I wasn’t raised on a farm, but my grandparents, who lived across the road from us, had a garden that we got to help with. Most of the vegetables we ate were home grown. I’ll never forget the wonderful smell of dirty potatoes!
We also had apple trees and tons of natural space to run around in. We were allowed to walk and ride our bikes up the road with no adult supervision. We had woods to play in and our own rope swing hanging on a tree.
While the city life that I now live is convenient, I don’t think I will ever be a true city girl. My country roots will always show through!
