People are always looking for ways to stay young. We met a Tulsa man Monday who may have found the secret to long life, in his garden.

Orville Greenwood is 93 years old. He's been gardening all his life, but it was only a few years ago that he started taking his green thumb seriously. He grows all kinds of vegetables outside his Tulsa apartment at 638 South Carson. "Well, I just like to see things grow and I just plant it and watch it grow."

Orville sells and shares his crops with his neighbors, but he says this summer heat is taking its toll on his crop.
