For anyone growing vegetables, tomatoes, or roses it can be seen from the two lower photos that free fertilizer in the form of horse manure was in abundance back then, all you needed to be was in the right place at the right time with a shovel in your hand. Is horse manure a good fertilizer? Well you definitely haven't tasted the best tomatoes until you taste the ones grown in horse manure!
The boy in the photo holding the horse looks a little too well dressed to be a farm hand, and may be the photographers son.
