Golden Years of Gardening

Look at the size of these cherry tomato plants! My husband's grandfather is nearly 90 and I guess he's learned a few things about gardening over the years.

My own grandfather says there's only one problem with gardening as you get older; with his poor eyesight he sometimes mistakes snakes for twigs. Eeek! But he's talented with plants, too; he got his orchid to re-bloom with double spikes this summer!

So I guess the golden years of gardening are still ahead!

I'm just impressed he's managed to grow a plant that requires a ladder - forget his ability, at 90, to USE the ladder!
