The 69-year-old is a grandmother to twin grandsons, 13, and a grand-daughter, 3.
“The three-year-old is now my assistant gardener. I have had more fun gardening this year than I ever had. It’s so great.”
Her grandchildren are away on vacation, so she’s toiling in her plot alone right now.
“I’m hoping to put in some carrots and Swiss chard,” Shemo said.
