How awesome! How inspiring! What a treat it is to read about your relative's insight, strength, self-reliance and determination again, Sharon. When I saw this headline, I was thrilled (as usual)!
Everything new under the sun isn't so new after all. I am going to commit the list of companion plants to memory.

Sharon, sure wish I had those memories and papers to go by. Am learning to raise a garden with my husband and we have lots to learn. Both our families raised gardens when we were young but not much of that information was retained with us. Thank goodness for DG and those of you willing to share your memories and experience!

I agree, thank you for sharing! Odd, how childhood memories are evoked from tastes, smells and sights for all of us.

Thanks so much for your beautiful article. It brought memories of my own childhood, with both grandmothers, who had the same love & respect for the land. I recall their work ethics as being very matter of factly, very this is how it is done type of thing. No compaining or not working, but still the happiest women I can recall. Thanks for bringing back that flood of wonderful memories for me. You inspire.

You all surely know how to brighten my day.

MistyPetals, it is always so good to hear from you.

Lana, I am sure you will do well, you have so much help available to you on DG.

Pirl, you always make me smile.

Podster, you anywhere near Orange, Texas? My late husband grew up there, lovely state.

Isn't that the truth, Nanny..."there's always a reason" along with "when you get a little older you will understand."

Me, too, Cathy...warts would have driven me out of the garden forever!

Ann, what a lovely comment. I hope I can continue to paint pictures with my words, that will be a challenge!

Thank you, Terri, I am so glad you like them.

So true, Davis, never a complaint or a harsh word. It was all a part of a bigger picture, and they knew that.

Y'all have given me smiles all morning.
Thank you
