Well, today is Mother's Day, so first and foremost,
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there.
Hope it is a happy day and you get treated like the queens you are!
We miss ours terribly, but we know they are always here in spirit to watch over us (and help us make the right decisions on the farm, ha).

For today, here is a cute poster. I'm not sure about the rhythm of the 'poem', it loses a bit at the end, LOL, but it's still funny and definitely original. It uses a classic Mother Goose. This one is from WWII and once again, they urged everyone to plan their "Victory Gardens", which helped the war effort. I know I am planning ours now!
For those new followers and new visitors to the blog, every Sunday, for about a year now, I've posted an image of a classic, vintage, gardening or canning poster that I've found online. Usually from library collections or historical societies or just found randomly online, you can click on the 'history' tag below this if to view them all.
As always, we hope you are having a great weekend!
