We can learn so much from history, and when we use what has been before us makes us realize how far we have come.
Here is a change of post. Picture of me, using a 103 year old Singer sewing machine.
I don't usually share pictures of me, but today I am. Here I am at the Thresher Show using a 103 year old Singer Sewing machine. You sew with it by turning a wheel not a treadle by the foot. Really interesting and fun. Lots of history we saw on Saturday at a Thresher and Steam Engine show. How things have changed...unbelievable. Weather in Iowa is having unseasonable warm, and lots of rain. Sounds like NE Iowa got 2 inches of rain over night. We didn't get any here, but sounds like this afternoon and tonight. Rain, rain go away...we are all saying because the farmers would like to be in the fields harvesting.
I know if you have a vegetable garden that is what you will be doing now and soon. Everything will be coming to an end, and needs to be harvest and put up for the winter however you do it. Apples are coming around and they are fun to cook and bake with. I am slowly moving things around and getting plants back into the greenhouse. So much to do, like so many gardeners getting their beds ready for winter. Not much today, more tomorrow. Till next time, this is Becky Litterer from Becky's Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa
