This was written with an authentic voice, gently humorous.

Since you mention your mother a few times, I'd have like to get to know her a bit better--we learn what she liked, and what she dislike, but not why--you had enough words left over to give your mother more personality.

A well-written reminiscence.
I love your description of your mom's gathering her garden from friends and roadsides. Thanks for sharing.
