Farm Hands

A couple of weeks from now my father will celebrate his 80th birthday and he's still growing strong. Thanks to Dad I have a love of gardens and an appreciation for all things home grown. Not only does Dad share his bounty with family but the people I work with and friends get to enjoy fresh tomatos and peaches,cabbage and just about anything else that he grows. Thanks Dad.


  1. What a great picture! Makes me miss my Grandpa, or as we called him, "Poppy."

    I worked in the yard most of the day! Summer has finally come to Washington!

    Have a great Week and Hugs to your dad!

  2. That's awesome... tell your dad I said so! There's nothing like homegrown veggies. I soooo wish I could have a garden...

  3. Lovely, strong hands.
    Makes me think of my dad, who is a
    71-year old retired exec who is now
    a day laborer on my parent's five
    acre property!!! Besides a huge
    veggie and rose garden, he grows
    dahlias, raspberries and does all
    of the yard maintenance.
    Happy birthday to YOUR dad!
    I love your blog.
    Thanks for visiting P&H and leaving
    such a sweet comment.
    I'm following you!

  4. This post have made me teary eyed. Lost my father in 1998 and still miss him and his "always ready to help" hands. Enjoy every moment! XO
