A garden outlives its beloved owner
A close up of green leaf lettuceGeorgia O'Keeffe was well known for her love of healthy food and fresh fruit and vegetables. She was rumored to complain about her lettuce wilting from the long trip between the farmer's market and her home. So, in 1945, she purchased a property that, after much hard work, would allow her to have her own garden for fresh produce. 

And that garden is still producing, cared for by descendants of O'Keeffe's own gardener. The garden is now overseen by the Georgia O'Keeffe museum and cared for by the grandchildren of the original gardener.
