Home Gardens

I've been gardening since I was about 6 years old. We lived in an 1865 Craftsman house with an exceptionally large garden and my mom and dad were both avid gardeners. We grew everything! Of course as soon as we were big enough, my brother and I gardened right along with them and consequently we learned a lot about making things grow. We had fruit trees too! I planted and watered and harvested and when we had too much produce after the canning and freezing was done, my best friend and I would put the fruit and vegetables in my red radio flyer wagon and down the street we would go selling my produce door to door for nickels and dimes. Of course we went straight to the candy store or the local diner for a milkshake after emptying the wagon. Ah, those were the days!
