This was the first seed catalog that I ever saw, I'm quite sure.
No, it wasn't 150 years ago, Silly! Sometime in the 1960's. I had started having my own garden and the neighbor across the road was a school teacher. She was from Rockford Illinois and that is where RH Shumway was located, at that time!
I remember the Kentucky Wonder beans I grew in that garden. (Shumway still has them .) I only set up a 4' tall trellis, not sure why. Good thing that it was sturdy. The vines grew up and down, up and down! Lots of memories, in the pages of this catalog.
the 2020 Territorial catalog came today
