Gardening with Grandma

I went to visit my grandma the other day. At 98, she’s a treasure and a pretty amazing person. Though she’s in good health, she lives in an assisted living facility now. She’s done her fair share of gardening in her day and several years ago, I sat down to talk with her about it. I was curious as to how much or how little things had changed over the years.

She was a young girl in the 1920s and that’s a long time ago by anyone’s standards, even hers. But some things never change, especially when it comes to the affairs of Mother Nature. Seeds get planted, they germinate, and they grow.
