I've been thinking a lot about the word "heritage" lately. This week's Team Article explores if part of your heritage is a gardening one.

Mulitple generations, except that my mother didn't grow much and didn't teach me anything, but I had Grandpa and he was my example. I was his little shadow and he gave me a little corner to grow some vegetables.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Put me here, too, as my great-grandmother was definietly a gardener, as were my grandmother and mother. I have it in my blood, it seems!
I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day. ~F. Frankfort Moore, A Garden of Peace
