[Groop] Also re-reading the collection

I've also been re-reading my entire collection in chronological order.  I had to take a break for a few months until I found a copy of Epic #118 that was affordable.  I'm currently in the middle of re-reading the "Hell on Earth" mini-series (recent history!)

Anyway, of course you notice more things when you re-read them, and so much more detail in the art than before, its great!  You can really tell that love has gone into crafting every panel.  I've also enjoyed watching the evolution of the character and the purpose of the book itself.  Something that is not always apparent when watched over the course of many years.

Anyway I have one question I have for the Groop:
In many village scenes I see this consistently: squashes, pumpkins, etc. sitting on top of thatched roofs.  Certainly there is a reason to this since its so frequent, but I've never seen anything like this in my life, but I know Sergio loves to give great detail to all the various aspects of people's jobs and work I know it can't be just made up.  Can anyone tell me the explanation for this?

  I've recently been re-reading my Groo collection, and the other day my son (who just turned 5 last weekend) picked up one of them from where I had set it down and started reading it!! It was #26 ("Arba and Dakarba") :).
