This is my mother's brother with his wife, Rahamim and Sterina Aladjem. The photo was taken in Sofia in the 1910s. They moved to Israel. There he sowed a melon field. There wasn?t any drinking water there and he decided to experiment - he put in sea water to irrigate the crop. As a result there were salty water melons only. All the relatives laughed at him because he couldn't sell anything.
