tasting food in the world!
Jon Frank was born with an appreciation for the soil. In fact, he believes this was instilled in him when his mother worked in her own garden very later in her pregnancy. Whatever influence that may have had, his earliest memories are of working alongside his mother in the garden.
She gave him his own plot to tend to by the time he'd turned four, and from the moment he started gardening he realized that he was drawn not only to the plants themselves but also to the soil they were growing in.
