The Grader at Henry’s Plant Farm

On Saturday, May 10, 2014, we paid a visit to this site to shop for garden plants.   http://www.thehenrysplantfarm.com  They had greenhouses of the plastic covered arches type.

It was a family friendly place.  Mom and Dad could shop for flowers and plants for the vegetable garden.  The kids could watch some farm animals such as a horse, a pony, peafowl, ducks, chickens, etc.  Sort of a petting zoo arrangement.

While I wasn’t in the business of actually buying plants, I explored the artifacts mostly relating to farming.  The most interesting one to me was an antique grader.  It was a masterpiece of forged wrought iron and cast iron engineering.  With close inspection there was a lot of evidence of hand work and the grain of the wrought iron was easy to see but my photo images didn’t capture it well.
