Tomato plants stand guard by the folk garden shed. Old tobacco sticks give structure to the growing plants.
Standing brightly at the edge of a large family home garden is a shed that spells folkways. A metal skin covers the old wood garden shed. It brightens the end of a family garden that holds many heirloom plants passed down through generations of family -- white skinned cucumbers, old timey sweet potatoes, parker beans and mustard that joins tomatoes and greens. Seed saving is part of the family's tradition.
