On a garden bus trip tour to Arkansas we stopped at the Good Earth Garden Center which was a very cool place to buy fountains, plants and an amazing gift shop. Being an antique tractor and equipment enthusiast I was excited when I spied a manure spreader and old tractor. At the center they had a good eye for adding old iron to their displays.
I went up close to get a good look at it and got talking to another woman on the trip. We were both looking at this piece of agricultural history and we got talking. It turned out that my husband and his brothers most likely baled hay at her father’s farm in their younger days. Her father is gone now and she lives in the city. The baling crew is no more, but for a few short minutes at the Good Earth Garden Center memories from long ago lived on.
