Fruit Orchards

Hello Dear Reader,
After high school Mary (Hall) had to face reality and find work. Jobs were scarce. One of her summer jobs was picking and sorting fruit for her uncle, Jess Cordner. Jess had married Mary’s Aunt Jen (Sarah Jane). Their fruit orchards were apparently in Orem, or on the Provo Bench, as it used to be called. Utah produces wonderful fruit. It's something about the cool nights and mountain air.

I don’t remember much about the Cordners but I do remember going to Provo Bench to see Mary’s Aunt Ag and Uncle Allen Bellows. They also had orchards. I loved going to see them as they were very kind to me.
Aunt Genni
