I did a bad typing job.. should read Lived on... not live on.. left for the city when 7th grade was over..
My uncle did live on the Red River valley area and had a very nice, large and productive wheat farm..
It does amaze me that kids do think as you say.. no idea how milk, meat and eggs are made.. Sad..
Too bad that area has been prone to some outrageous flooding. Otherwise it is a beautiful area. I love the smell of fresh cut alfalfa.
