The Good Old Days

Jerry AppsAuthor, retired professor of agriculture, former farm kid.

I kept trying to write a post that explained how much I’ve appreciated his writing, his insights into his past, not just his own life, but how it was typical of how North American agriculture was shaped over the last century.  After a few unsuccessful drafts, I realized:  Jerry speaks pretty well for himself.

Go find one of his books at the library or online, check out his PBS series, buy one of the DVDs if you feel so inclined, and let his gentle way with words seep into your mind and heart.  It’s uplifting and realistic at the same time.  Enjoy.

    This is what I’ve been thinking for a while, not that we are anywhere near where he is in terms of anything.
