Stories handed down to me by my grandmother and her sister working on a flower farm tugged at me. Her Dutch neighbor Christina, loved more than flowers, resulting in deportation to the Netherlands in 1914, and a second attempt at a Transatlantic crossing to America.
My grandparents would purchase Christina’s property one month before the stock market crash of 1929 and keep the property by paying the interest on the mortgage. Across the road my great-grandmother received the gift of a farm in her pact to take care of her adoptive parents until they died. The tenacity and persistence of these women in farming as a way of life intuitively led a granddaughter to carry on the family’s legacy nearly a century later.
