Here's a beautiful picture during one of the beautiful snows we had this season. The next picture is of one the fields. It's hard to see, but B is on a tractor working the field. That's one of the greenhouses of tomatoes. They are already staked and several feet high. These are much better than the 'grainger' county tomatoes, in my opinion anyway. B taught me how to drive one of the tractors this summer, the large Kobota. It was much easier than I thought it would be. If I could work full time on the farm, that would be ideal. We have some plans to work towards this eventually.
B's family has been farming for four generations now and is very well known in this area. I took agriculture and horticulture classes with him all through high school. We were in 'FFA" together. The last two years, we were officers - he was President and I was Secretary. We competed in parlimentary procedure contests together. We never placed higher than second, but hey, that stuff is no fun, especially for a teen, so I was pleased.
I'm so very happy these days. Things are so different than they have been in many years, really ever. You could not ever find one person to ever say one thing of ill will against my husband, he is so well thought of in this community; well in east tn, since they sell produce to such a large area. If you buy a pumpkin 'round here, it most likely has been grown and picked by him, even if you bought it in Asheville, Banner elk, or little ole Chucky Tn. That goes for watermelon also. He's a man who works very hard and a person of integrity, a man of his word. To be married to him, is what I consider an accomplishment.
