About The Back 40


I fondly remember working on Mr. Taylor’s farm each summer as a teenager. Transplanting acres of cabbage and cutting thousands of zucchini wasn’t always easy, but I loved the smell of fresh vegetables. Early retirement in 2014 allowed me to return to that earliest passion. I now take immense pleasure in growing a variety of cut flowers and fresh seasonal produce. And I still use this potato digger!
