Sharing a Love for Growing Things Through the Generations.
My mother was an avid participant in 4-H from a young age. Her projects were often related to horticulture and gardens. This photo shows her giving a demonstration on how to propagate house plants. About 1948-1949 I think.
She inherited her green thumb from her parents. My grandfather’s family had a truck farm. He and his brothers ran a roadside fruit and vegetable market until the 1970s. My grandmother had lovely flower gardens. The photos below show the Kokesh Bros. Market and my grandmother in her gardens.
And my mother passed her love of growing things on to her children. The next picture is of one of my sister’s gardens. This past summer my older brother planted over 10,000 gladiola bulbs. The last photo shows part of his field.
I hope the next generation continues to have green blood running through their veins.
