By the time Pat and Henry Leuchtman unloaded the third U-Haul truck at their new old farmhouse at the end of a dirt road, Henry declared that this was it. He was never moving again. He had reached the end of his road. These lively essays chronicle the beginning of their adventures with neighbors like Mabel, who at 83 was still game to help coral escaped heifers, Elsa and Mike who took a unique approach to the predators among the delphiniums, a daughter’s garden wedding witnessed by the roses, broccoli and a rain storm, and the destruction of the barn hit by lightning. End of the Road Farm also saw the growth of a Rose Walk and the institution of the Annual Rose Viewing. These brief essays about life in the country are illustrated with humorous drawings by Henry Leuchtman.
