Days Of Old...

This was the site at Justin's yesterday.....

 

 
A new truck and an old Case...living in both worlds.
 
 
For Father's Day we took in the events at Denis&Sharon Kuntz Farm
 
 
He has done an amazing job of showcasing history....

 
You feel like you stepped back in time for a moment...
 
 
With his little mock village...
 
 
I was feeling like we work like crazy fools all summer
but
 after seeing how much harder things really were...
 
We started cutting hay this week but not with knives like this....
 

 
 
Before you can even start cooking you had to gather wood....

 
Toast and butter all took time to make....
 
 
Arnold said these are not THAT old....
 
He vividly remembers digging peanut butter out of these cans...


and Rogers Syrup in these cans...


I love this wrapping station...
 
Makes it feel like everything you purchased was special

 
Ironing...


Sewing....

 
Shoe making...
 

 
Making and stretching your socks...
 
 
Washing your clothes was an event....

 
No tossing it in and going to do something else...



Even the bathroom was an experience...
 

 
A staple of every outhouse... Sears catalogues...
 
They served as reading material and toiler paper!!!
 
 
 

Milk came from cows like Justin's recent purchase....
 
Sweet Pea... a jersey cow
(he is fostering some calves)
 

 
Then bottled in glass bottles.....
 

 
with paper caps...
 

Combining took days with the size of this No.12A
 

 
Look at this 317, Dad!!
 
Just like the one you're still using.... in the lineup of Vintage!!
 

 
Yet people still took time to take the baby for a walk...
 
Such a sweet little pram...
 
 
Since we are celebrating history....
 
We were asked to come help celebrate 75 years for Dairy Queen
 
Estevan's store was the first one in Canada
and
they were having a party yesterday!!
 
 
Congratulations to Louise,Loretta, and Denise...
 
Three sisters running a great business!! 
 
 
It's back to the field for me....
 
 
The clover is being plowed down...
 
 
 
You can see why it was important that I found my phone before it got too tall!!!

 
And after a pass with this disc there would be nothing left of it!!

 
I have to say.....
 
 I am proud to carry on the tradition of farming.
 
Growing good food,
 
Christa

  1. What a wonderful trip down memory lane! I do remember getting our milk in glass bottles, but some of that other stuff is way older than me!
    Why did you plow under the clover instead of making it into hay? Inquiring minds.....

    1. Hey Miss Carol!! Nice to hear from you again!! We plot clover down as fertilizer for next years crop. We have lots of alfalfa we use for feed! Clover takes care of a lot of problematic weeds!! Hope your summer is going well!!
