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, a large number of men were off to serve in the war. That left a shortage in farm labor to deal with the fields of food and orchards, but the food still needed to get to the public. So posters like these were put up to urge men, usually young men, to sign up and help out on farms.
I wonder if a poster like this would get today's young people to sign up for a farm job? For some, they might ask if there was a Starbuck's nearby...or a Pokestop...LOL!
Hope you are having a good day, we are back to rain today so I'm canning and 2nd Man is baking. It will be a good day!
