Grandmom's Hamburger-Vegetable Soup

This recipe comes from Gordie's grandmother's favorite recipes in a typed cookbook, illustrated by her grandchildren, and is one of two vegetable soups in there. We tend to make this soup in the space between Christmas and New Year's Day. It is so comforting to eat, as well as to cook-- the instructions are dump everything in a pot. I've adjusted the ingredients a tiny bit but not much and included the original recipe complete with dancing vegetables here just in case. We enjoy the barley in it, and we hardly ever eat barley otherwise (having to replace our expired bag of it once a year for this purpose). It is sublime with cheese bread, but makes a great warm meal with any bread or salad on the side.
