My grandparents had 9 children. My father was the youngest and last child to leave the farm and come North. It didn't seem like a glorified life to have him tell the story. I remember visiting as a child. I don't remember a lot but I do remember that it was rural with dirt roads and acres of pine trees. This was family land and still is. When we walked through the forest as children you could see and hear wild turkeys. I haven't been to visit in years but my brother and sister sometimes go for a family event such as a birthday, homecoming, or a family reunion. My brother and cousins often go in the Fall to hunt deer and at Christmas or Thanksgiving. I remember my aunts house that still stands and where family gather on holidays. It is a wood house that sits back of the road on acres of land surround by fencing. When she was living she had raised goats. I remember she had a beautiful Jersey cow and how long his eye lashes were. The thinks remembered.
|Nice idea, was expensive!|
|Love chickens, roosters.|
|Meadowbrook Farm is in Abington Pennsylvania. It's the store of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. I haven't been there yet but plan to go. In my opinion their goods are priced for more than I would like to pay.|
|Leeks, cucumbers, and squash.|
|If I purchased one it would be one of the pigs. Look at the one with it's face on the ground.|
