Workamping on the old family farm

We workamped partial summers of 2009-2011 on the old family farm.
We built our FHU RV site from the abandoned old mobile home site.
We grew tomatoes in the PVC tubes, an incredibly successful experiment!
Grandma would have been so proud of all of our flower & garden bed efforts!
We harvested more tomatoes than we could eat from 25 huge plants!
Also pumpkins, pole & bush beans, broccoli, & herbs!
We had lots of wild visitors too!!!
Mother Nature was very good to us!!!
A great end to the growing season!!!
