Katie - I was looking at that too and wondering exactly what it was he was using.
What I like was the realistic depiction and that there was not a "Disney-fication" of the gardening. I also recognize that clay soil!
I'm guessing that this was in Frederick or maybe around Hagerstown. Would be neat to talk to any surviving family members.
