Homesteader's Garden

This picture from the Online Exhibit-Bound for Glory is entitled "Garden adjacent to the dugout home of Jack Whinery, homesteader"
Pie Town, New Mexico, September 1940

Pie Town is southwest of Albuquerque.

The Author cannot determine the variety of plant that the girl is picking. The large plants in the center forefront of the garden could be tobacco. As an aside, many current generation New Mexico "homesteaders" grow a different plant, far less legal, for smoking purposes.
