Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt is the garden. My maternal grandmother Lucille Rucker Davis always had beautiful flowers and delicious tomatoes growing side by side. Her garden was not the beautifully planned and dedicated space that drives aficionados of Pinterest to pin and repin. But she did know the value of digging a $5.00 hole for a 50¢ plant.

Now the girls are grown and gone. I’m retired. I have a new fence. And a square foot garden.
In July, my pumpkins were coming along really well.
In the end, I got a handful of Baby Boo pumpkins and only one Lumina, losing all the rest to rot.
|One Baby Boo was the perfect "paper weight" for cocktail napkins.|

I didn’t inherit Grandma’s green thumb, but I got her hoe and watering can.
I’ve planted the seed, so please visit my friends at Sepia Saturday to see what is blooming in the blogisphere.
