Big Garden



Today's picture is from 1940, and it shows a woman with a really big garden. The garden is very impressive . . . very straight rows, and no weeds. You can see she has put a lot of work into it.

  1. I agree, nice garden. And that looks like a heap of cabbage she has growing. I like her laundry line.

  3. That is an awful lot of cabbage...what do you do with that amount of cabbage...make KIMCHI? only if you are Korean...sauerkraut? only if you are German...what do you suppose she did with it? Took it to the local market for fresh produce? 1940? Could have used it for barter...??

  5. No TV. Maybe a radio. Time was spent doing other things.
