This photo is of my Grandmother Baugher’s Aunt & Uncle. Don’t know exactly who they might be. The photo was probably taken in Nodaway County, Missouri, in the early 20th century.
We now get some historical perspective on how my ancestors believed a yard should be treated. If you read Get Off My Lawn! a few days ago, you know this is a current subject near and dear to my heart. If you didn’t read that article, you can do so now.
See how the couple tended their yard, I mean garden? And by tending, I mean how they let it grow. A couple of more years, and they won’t be able to get in the front door. They’ve already anticipated that, so they’ve moved their living room furniture out into the yard.
And I thought yard care was difficult. Thanks, Aunt & Unc, now I know how easy it can be!
