Where are we?

Enough eggs laid end to end to reach the moon 7 times
Enough milk to float the navies of the United Nations
Enough meat to pave 8, 4-lane super highways from NY to San Francisco 1" thick
Enough cases of canned tomatoes to reach from Boston to Bombay, India
Corn acreage equal to the area of Japan proper
Within These Walls
Mary Scott ran this home during WWII, personally canning the produce from her victory garden.
"Rain! The gardens need it bad. Canned up seven qts. carrots, and I set the alarm for 1:20 A.M. and went to bed."
