Our friends the weed scientists invited us to see friends on a farm in the countryside during the national festival this week. We were once again humbled by the graciousness and gratitude exemplified by our hostess, a widow in her 70s with her family.
Living in a simple two-room home, an outhouse out back, and a $60/month stipend for retirement, she says, “What more do I need?”
We were privileged to capture an afternoon on this small farm, picking tomatoes and more.
Nothing in China is thrown away.
Basket’s getting heavy.
