The Gaffer's three sons.


~~~

Gaffer Gamgee had thought to leave Bag End's gardening to his eldest son, and find the second a place in Hobbiton or else in Tighfield, as it pleased the Master. But Ham was ever tangling and twining and finger-weaving little oddments, while Hal was dutiful enough but as like to mash a bulb in his hands as hold it. And then came Samwise, little Sam, who murmured to the plants as he tended them with gentle chubby fingers, shining smiles on them and all but watering with tears, and the Gaffer knew which son would take over his place.
