Most every Sunday, we try to post an image of old posters that we find during online surfing. We enjoy the ones that reflect farming, gardening and/or food preservation and rationing. We enjoy them because we often wonder if anyone today would heed the kind of advice they gave back then...enjoy!

Now if ever there was an old message that was relevant to today (and dare I say, much needed), it's this one. This dates from WWII and of course focuses on those left at home to help by working together to, we assume, build the infrastructure needed for the war effort.
If more of society worked together today and had a sense of teamwork, regardless of nationality, group, religion, political differences, etc, it seems like we could get so much more done to solve problems affecting everyone.
Wise words then, wise words now.
Hope you are having a good weekend. Weather has been hot and more humid than it should be. As this posts, I'll be at the farm, going to tackle the fence in garden area. I am embarrassed to say that it hasn't been touch since the endless rains of the Spring/early Summer and then the heat appeared so quickly for the Summer, it was impossible to get much done. Now, to use the words "out of control" would be an understatement. The plan is to tack the raised beds, pull all the weeds, and cover them for Winter. Then maybe when it's cooler, I can tackle the ground around them, where weeds are reclaiming all of our beautiful black mulch. Sigh. It's always something.
