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!

Here is an interesting one. It's an ad from a magazine that became a poster in grocery stores. We will have to admit, we never thought about grapefruit juice in this way...the poster states that a glass a day keeps fatigue away and it helps restore vitamin C. It's also interesting they choose the garden setting to persuade its use (we won't get into the obvious sexist overtones, LOL).
I'll admit, I've never been much of a grapefruit fan, and I more often associate grapefruit juice with weight loss potential. But heck, if a cold glass after working on the raised beds or mowing for 4 hours helps, I might just try it out later this Spring and Summer. Maybe it will help my 'wilted feeling', ha.
Cold weekend for us, not much I can do outside, but I won't complain as about 1/3 of our country is covered in record snowfall.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
