My first Kentucky garden was in 1974, and it was a humdinger. My husband Walt Rose and I had bought a Troy-bilt tiller in anticipation of our move to Kentucky from Illinois, and we worked up a huge garden area on the only flat piece of land we had. I'll bet it was at least a quarter acre.
We had spent the previous winter pouring through seed catalogs, ordering enough for five families. We even ordered some trees, and our house was in the middle of the woods!
