Garden Tools


One is never too young to learn the fine art of gardening. Year after year, my father has turned the same 10 x 15 foot plot into bushels of vegetables. This year, my parents' aide, Letty, has assumed the task, and when the last tomato has been picked, she may have given dad a run for his money!

Do your parents still live in their own house? That's what I want as well. As long as I can I will do my own housework.

I can remember my father and his vegetable garden after he retired. He worked the plot and then Mom did the canning, etc. They also grew corn and had a corn roast every August. Good memories.

Gee, Leslie. You reminded me about the canning. These were big production days, and the equipment still sits in mom's attic. We didn't have enough room for corn ... but I envy you the corn roasts. Thanks for sharing.
