My Dad and his garden

My dad loves his garden and his greenhouse. Those who know him will know how ill he was a year ago. He is 89 in September and he is still supplying us all with what he grows. Today I was over there to get some rhubarb,And jolly good rhubarb it is. His potatoes are well up in the greenhouse and the mint already a couple of inches high. He grows his tomatoes from seed,there are onions,beans and peas in containers and sweet peas all growing waiting for the warmer weather to be planted out. There is a multitude of different trees to be planted and some game cover to sow. Fruit trees to be pruned and his flower beds to be planted up. What a marvelous man and even more a marvelous Dad.
