Strange things happen....
Autos of beauty:
For today, (Thursday):
We live on Ann St. according to the street sign. It is Ann Drive according to the state and GPS. Originally the street was a big U, leaving Greenwood street, following a U pattern and returning to Greenwood street, it was called North Street.
In the city’s wisdom, they removed the bottom of the U making a dead end street. The city named it Ann after the wife of Mr Stowe at the head of our dead end street. The abandoned land was then for sale. As a builder I bought the closed part along with more land around it. I built 5 houses here.
For the past three years while in our NC home we have walked. Walking by Mr. Stowes home, there is always a beautiful small garden about 15 feet by 30 feet. It is well kept and produces some beautiful vegetables, melons along with several tomato plants with big red tomatoes.
Nothing strange about that me ‘n you might say, until I tell you that NOT ONE THING IS EVER HARVESTED FROM THAT GARDEN! It rots on the vine and or falls to the ground. One of these days Imma going to get the nerve to ask, 'What is the story here?'
We have speculated:
A garden his wife always kept?
Feeding the animals?
Loves to see things grow???
I bring this up only because, here it is again. Tilled neatly. Small tomato plants in a different area every year (Must be crop rotation) and other green things are popping their little heads out of the soil. They will grow and never grace the dinner table. ??????? Odd to say the least.
