There Is Something About A Tractor

tractorsMy grandson Aaron loves tractors! As soon as he comes over to visit, after hello hugs, the first thing he asks his Granddad is: “Can we drive the BIG tractor?” At 3 years old, he has Granddad wrapped around his finger and when he looks all serious and says to me: “Oma, Granddad and I have a lot of work to do outside,” I know that his love of tractors is alive and well.

I was showing Aaron some old photos this weekend and came across these two of my grandfather–Albert Behnke–with his youngest son, my Uncle Albert. I think once again a picture or two says it all. It totally cracks me up since it shows a side of my grandfather that few knew about. I can so imagine my husband and grandson doing this. Aaron has a pedal tractor parked in the garage next to the BIG tractor…I am thinking that the next time he visits, I am going to have to have my camera ready.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
