The Recorder wants your memories of farming and gardening in times past for an upcoming supplement called “In Business Since.”

This popular section is like a trip down Memory Lane and this year the topic is agriculture. That includes backyard gardens, working in tobacco or orchards, growing up on the family farm, taking care of farm animals, harvesting and preserving the fruits of your labors and picnics and other celebrations on the farm.

Any and all farm photos and memories from about the 1960s and earlier are welcome!
