H. Beaber - In the Philippines - February 8, 1943

Willie, Cecil, and I work in the garden almost every day. Willie specializes on corn which he likes very much and he has raised us some good ears for the table. Cecil has various things and I take care of the upl, which is a native squash that grows on a horizontal trellis and the talinoms. I sell about 30 centavos worth of it is the market everyday. And we have onions, tomatoes, egg-plant, green peppers, pechay and other vegetables for our use, as well as a few extra to give to our friends and sometimes to sell.
