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!
|War Plants Need Corn, poster image courtesy of NY Public Library, War Images|
Well this is an interesting poster image. It's from WWII and urged farmers to move their corn to market as the war plants (manufacturing supplies/equipment for the war effort) needed them. Not sure why, but we're guessing for fuel?
Hope you are having a good weekend, it's cold and rainy (and wet cold is the worst kind of cold) and so not much got done at the farm. I got one raised bed prepped for Winter, a new method we're trying (post on that next week). Next weekend is supposed to be sunny and clear, so fingers crossed!
We're off this afternoon to 2nd Man's Great Nephew's 4th birthday party. We can't believe the long weekend is almost over...where DOES the time go?
