Robinson-Hackett Farm, located in Smith County, Tennessee, was established on November 18, 1915 by Dr. Charles Ward Robinson and his wife, Velma Hackett Robinson.
The 2016 season was abbreviated for me since I spent a good part of it overseas, the summer in France, Greece and Norway, and the fall and winter on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean. I saw the spring, though, and summer's overgrowth when I returned from Europe. After four years in the ground, my paw paw trees finally bloomed. Mockingbirds ate all the little fruits, though. Maybe I'll have better luck next season. 2016 will also go down as the year I had to put up a fence to keep the varmints out; didn't want to but the pests were doing too much damage. Below is a short slide show for 2016.
