Arthur Charest prepares his tomato garden Wednesday for next year’s growing season, behind his home in Auburn. Charest, 84, said his tomatoes got off to a slow start this past summer, but finished strong. Gardening can be “a lot of work, but it keeps me going,” Charest said. “When you quit getting out, that’s when you dig your own grave.” (Daryn Slover/Sun Journal)
