This is a map of Iowa Highway 52, where during the late 19th century and early to mid 20th century, my father's ancestors all had homesteads or farms. After my dad would spend every road trip pointing out each location and telling stories about all the people who once lived there, I decided to write everything down and record the history with a map. The church pictured at right is St. John's Lutheran Church, where my great grandfather was a founding member and where most of these people are buried.
The cute cultural area of small college town, Carrollton, GA. I pretty much grew up here, and Horton's was my father's favorite bookstore. I visited most of the shops on the Square before I moved, and since my parents still live near by, I still have a chance to visit the rest.
This map for a square foot Salad Garden includes my some of my favourite herbs & vegetables (and some flowers for the bees, too). If you have a sunny balcony, the square foot method could be modified for container gardening (one square = one 12"pot?).
