We didn't buy any
Followed Leone in the dollar store. Her beloved cheerios are cheaper there. I just wandered while she was shopping and found canned green cabbage, canned yellow summer squash. Both were a dollar. WHY would anyone buy canned green cabbage or for that matter yellow squash? You'd think you would have a can full of green glop or yellow glop.
It was in the late 40's or early 50's and broccoli was an unknown vegetable in western Nebraska. Leone had never seen or eaten it. I had eaten it in some large city when I was in the navy
. We were grocery shopping and spotted canned broccoli. It was Libby's brand and we bought a can. You can guess how good that was
Remembering, about the only vegetables available back in that time period were potatoes, carrots, head lettuce, cabbage and in season local produce. We thought mushrooms, broccoli and brussel sprouts were exotic. Fruit was oranges, bananas, apples, lemons and sometimes limes. The apples were predictably red delicious and golden delicious.
There were a couple of potato farmers west of North Platte a few miles. I always went there to buy the over size potatoes. A 100 pound burlap bag for $1:00. 10 cents deposit on the burlap bag. The tubers were quite large, too large to be graded #1's but they were cheap and we ate lots of them. Hard to remember when food was that cheap. Carried away as usual. Enough.
