A Harvest Story (two photos) / by Dave Hileman

This harvest is not pumpkins and corn but seafood. If you like dishes like the one below, you really need Tiny Firth. He has been crabbing and oyster dredging for 58 years in the boat his daddy had built in the late 1940's for $800 in Deltaville, VA. Here he is arriving at his docking space after unloading the early morning catch.

 You don't get to eat this dish without someone like Tiny getting up at 3AM and heading 6 miles out to get the days catch.
