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!

During WWII, when it was a male only army of course, women were tasked with keeping things going at home. Britain and other allied countries (this one comes from the UK) started the "Women's Land Army" to have women work in the farming industry to replace the jobs and responsibilities of the men that left to go to war...because as this poster says, FOOD COMES FIRST!
I dare say they probably did a better job!
Off to the farm this morning, not sure what all I'll get done, not sure what will need to be done, but with this cool weather, I'll do whatever I can.
