Aunt Gerfie' Finds A Way
BY BARBARA T. IIKWKTT
The hum of tractors cutting gar
g den soil can be
heard across the
these days, just
one of the signs
that it will soon
be time for
SL^s Vs. hFor man,y ?f
HE WEI I ;inj spniQ,
/.ens. preparing garden plots has tak
en precedence over the silting and
sunbathing that had filled many win
ter noondays and afternoons.
"Aunt Gcrti," or Gertrude Ri
chardson of Turkey Trap Road is
getting ahead in the planting game.
Her onions, white potatoes and salad
greens arc already two inches tall
and gaining another fraction of an
inch each day, it seems.
She amazes everyone with her
"green thumb mania," which has led
her lo find a way to get her gardening
under way despite a handicap caused
by chronic leg ami feci problems.
!n fact, she has directed the early
work of the garden from a wheel
chair position, only using her car for
that purpose. With the window
rolled down, she direcLs her ne
phews, Reginald Lofton Hewett and
Collis Hewett II, on how deep and
how far apart to plant the rows of
vegetables she desires.
Other gardeners can claim firsts
in germinating sweet peas, lima
beans or corns, but not this unique
way of getting the job done.
Comings And (i<>ings
Collis Hewett recently enjoyed a
trip to Atlantic City, N.J.
He motored by car and tells of an
interesting time sightseeing. He was
fascinated by the many changes that
have taken place since he last trav
eled to the Mid-Atlantic states near
ly 15 years ago.
