Green Thumb

Connected

Recently my Aunt Maybelle left me with a family memento. She is well-known in our family as the “family geneologist” so I felt pretty thrilled to be the recipient of her generosity.

Somehow I missed getting a pic of the outside of the book, but here’s some valid info of the subject, copyright and who it belonged to….. my grandpa. He was the epitomy of farmer in his Osh Kosh overalls and hat. Not surprised he would have had a book like this one.

Just some pages I found interesting. Some survivalists are drooling right now 😉

Me? I’m just bragging right now about how tall my peas have grown this year. And this was over a week ago. They’re nearly to the top of those trellis’s! Kind of feeling connected to my farming roots about now.

      • I bet she does!!! I’ll never forget a couple or so years ago when I found out that – gasp! – my grandfather had secretly been married in 1918 before he married my grandmother! I have no idea if my grandmother – or my dad for that matter – ever knew. Secrets have a way of coming out eventually!
