My First Garden Back in 1974 or 75

I was about 19 or 20. I turned over a plot of earth in my back yard in Warwick, RI--shoveled some bin loads of some very black sticky composted dirt from a near by sewerage treatment plant--mixed it all in--planted seeds and watched, in awe and with my camera, as the plants grew from tiny sprouts to big beautiful plants with spectacular buds, flowers and fruits or vegetables . This must have been either a pumpkin or a squash plant. That was a great garden!

watermelon? Yes I think so.

Thanks Ann, but that was my garden 36 years ago--I will be posting about my most recent soon.


Yes! We were both still at home at the time.

Clearly your love of gardening stayed with you all these years, Susan!

Hi Dean--I guess so--I've had many years without a garden too--just got tired of losing the fight--I'm back this year and I feel like I'm learning all over again!
