A Baby Farm?

Has anyone ever seen a postcard series like this before? Heaven knows where I got them from but it is a seriously strange subject. They may be German and I guess it illustrates some sort of tradition? If anyone recognises it, I would love to know what it is all about.

The woman makes her choice as the baby gardener looks on.

Some days later, the baby gardener delivers the chosen crop.

  2. Gosh, you're quick Rosie! I hadn't thought of the cabbage patch expression!
