My father would be so proud to see the three generations of McGroarty Nurserymen. I’d love to add at least one McGroarty girl to this crew but so far we have three little boys in the family. We’re counting on Kevin and Grace to add the girl or girls to the mix. Time will tell.
EDIT (June 2019): Kevin and Grace have since pulled through and we have a girl, Eileen, and another boy, Jack! Here are some pics of them working at the nursery.
My father wasn’t a nurseryman but he was a true Irishman and loved to grow potatoes. He also loved kids. He really loved kids and I often think about how much fun he would have with Duston’s three boys.
We lost my father in 2003 but without a doubt, he left an amazing mark on the world.
Just a few days ago Duston and Lorelei had the kids over at the nursery and we had them try their hand at sticking cuttings.
Lorelei snapped a ton of photos and I’ll get some of those photos posted along with the photos that I am going to post here today. I will update this page often so you can follow along on our journey.
More photos to come soon . . .

The pics of those 2 beautiful boys are great.Happy Father’s day you’all.
It’s good teaching the boys to use the tools,
but don’t forget the safety aids.
We raised 6 children, and they were taught to use various tools, along with the safe use and use of gloves and goggles.
