Leadership, Productivity, and My Vegetable Garden

It happens every summer. No matter how good our intentions or how disciplined we are, at some point our vegetable garden gets away from us.

We know what we are supposed to do. Fertilize it by working in rich, organic material into the soil. Plant it. Water it. And keep the weeds out. If we do these basic things, we will have a decent harvest.

She thought for a moment, “That’s what you do when you cook a ham. My mom always did, and she taught me how to cook.” But now she was curious. A little while later she decided to call her mom and find out. Her mother responded the same. “I am not really sure. My mom always did it that way, and so I did as well. I guess you’ll have to ask her.”

So she called up her grandmother. Surely she would know the reason for cutting the ends off of the ham. “Grandma, I have a question for you. I asked mom, but she didn’t know the answer. Why do you cut the ends off the ham before you cook it?”
