Huang Guo (b.1926) is a resident of Zhaixia Village, Pengzhai Town, Heping County, Heyuan City, Guangdong Province. After the communization, people could only buy bad sweet potatoes, which tasted terrible. When running out of sweet potatoes, people started to use dried sweet potatoes vines to make porridge. Ye’s mother, after eating the porridge, had a swollen stomach and soon died. They also ate beans. Ye’s son was so starved that he could not stop crying; he also had diarrhea overnight after having bean leaves. When Ye reaped crops, she secretly hid many crops in her pants’ pockets, because only the stolen food truly belonged to her. Her husband once stole two sweet potatoes, got revealed and lost two days of food.
