Born into slavery in Missouri, Carver later earned degrees from Iowa Agricultural College. The director of agricultural research at the Tuskegee Institute from 1896 until his death, Carver developed hundreds of applications for farm products important to the economy of the South, including the peanut, sweet potato, soybean, and pecan.

Pamela what a beautiful tribute for Black History Month. Who knows more about gardening that George Washington Carver?

I particularly love his quote. It is definitely an eye opener!
