Remembering some ancestors
My grandparents/great-grandparents owned a company which contained greengrocers, fruit growers and a plant nursery all in one spot. But that was in the early stages of the 20th century. In the sixties only the fruit growing was continued and some years later apples and pears was all there was left. Other specialties like melons,peaches, prunes, beans, chysanthemums, nuts and so on were swiped away by… the global economy.
