Although Robert left school after the 5th grade to work in the mines, he was extremely bright and was able to make or fix anything with his hands.

He would put in a full days work in the mines and then come home to work in the garden until dark. When harvest season came around, he and his family worked to can many products (tomatoes, tomato juice, soup mix, green beans, dried shuck beans, chow chow, bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, creamed corn, peaches, crab apple jelly and preserves, black berry jam, and polk greens). He would stay up at night until 1-2 AM making sure the fire under the #2 washtub was hot enough to boil and seal the mason jars.
