My mother was an avid gardener and we had a couple of acres for her to play with. Mom had large formal flower gardens closer to the house, and a vegetable garden down on the flats and Mom knew all of the plants by both common and Latin name. My mother-in-law is also a Master Gardener and master can-ner, even though she moved to a condo( She has taken over part of my brother-in-laws yard to do it)!
All of this seems to have skipped my generation! Here is our watermelon:
