If you're looking for a homegrown watermelon or tomatoes, look no further than Mulberry Manor.

World War II veteran David Peaton has a garden that would impress anyone, and at age 93 he's still digging the weeds out himself.

"Back when I was a kid we had to grow everything ourselves," Peaton said. "We couldn't just go to the market and get everything we needed or wanted. Our necessities came from what we grew and raised."

Peaton credits his background as a reason for starting the garden and being so committed to the project.

"I'm just an old country boy that was raised in Sulpher Springs, Texas," he said. "I joined the army, been a fireman and worked as a mechanic. I've done a little bit of everything and so I thought I'd take this up."

As of now, Peaton has a wide variety sprouting up including watermelons, tomatoes, pumpkins, squash, beans and cucumbers.

"I enjoy seeing things grow," he said. "Getting outside and listening to the birds and being able to sit in the sun is great. I'll even talk to the man upstairs, I think he's got a say in how everything grows. And who doesn't like a homegrown tomato?"
