And Thackeray's picture of Gumbo carrying in the soup tureen!
When cattle get into gumbo, the farmers send for the stump-dynamite and try blasting.
They will then be good (with the addition of tomata paste) to boil in soup or gumbo.
In the northern counties it is found in "gumbo" soils in swamps.
I prefer hilltop, north slope, soil as deep as possible, and a gumbo subsoil.
