The harvest still happened in a garden in Donnelly but it was different this fall. Janet Nordstrom wasn't there for the harvest or the planting. Nordstrom, an avid gardener and canner, died in January. "I have my own little garden a few feet away," Nordstrom's brother Richard Olsen said. The house and garden plots have been in the family for several generations since the late 1800s, Olsen said. His garden is maybe 20 by 20 feet, Olsen said. His sister's garden was about 20 by 50 feet, maybe 60 feet.
