One day, Poppa decides to buy some seeds and a little plough. he wanted to start farming up in the hills. I did my homework and mom prepared the dinner when he came home. he was telling us about his intentions and mum couldn't believe her ears. nothing could grow there. she put down the carrots that she was peeling and turned to him. he was standing near the door, looking at her defiantly. as soon as she started to speak, he became angry and went out. some time later I went outside and looked for him. when I found him, he was feeding the cows in the shed. "And yet, I'm sure it would grow fine in the hills" he said sadly.
