Artist's Description

My 86 year old father has been gardening all his life. He’s a natural at it and continues to provide his family with homegrown produce every year—watermelons, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and squash. This one weighed in at 22 pounds! Mama does all the processing and cooking and works just as much magic in the kitchen as she and Daddy work in the garden where she’s the flower Queen and he’s the Produce King!

When I see Daddy in this picture, I think of the verse from the Psalms: “They are planted in the house of the Lord, they flourish in the courts of our God. They still bring forth fruit in old age, they are ever full of sap and green.” (Psalm 92:13-14)

Postscript: Daddy’s a firm believer in not wasting. When he goes to eat out at a restaurant, he often keeps the seeds of fruits and vegetables he really likes. He dries them and then plants them in little cups before putting them in the rich soil of his garden. This summer he had a bumper crop of the sweetest watermelons which he grew from the seeds he got from the Chinese restaurant where he and Mama like to eat. I can see in his and Mama’s attitudes some of the reasons why they’ve been tagged “the greatest generation.” Daddy served in the U.S. Navy during WWII. He was on the USS Yorktown when it was torpedoed and sank.
