Hi, Christie!
I found your blog at "On the Way to Critter Farm," and I'm so glad I did. I lived in suburban Delaware for seven years while completing graduate school, then moved to the woods of Maine to begin my own living local project. So much of what you write about resonates deeply. And the archival photos are great!

Wow! We could've been mistaken for sisters!! I didn't keep that beautiful light blonde hair though, mine darkened. Great pics!

So, would you say it was your grandfather who instilled in you your love of gardening? These are great pictures - you are so attentive. Can you remember the smell of that cigar? :-)

So cute! Thank you for sharing. I love it when we see glimpses of our current selves in our past and when we realize how the older generation had it right for a lot of things.

Great pictures, Christy!

By the way, we got our Country Living grain mill recently. It was quite an investment but it works wonderfully. I would strongly recommend getting the power bar attachment to make it easier to use. (Or convert it to pedal power as is our plan.)

Kathryn - Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy it.

Farm mom - My hair has darkened up a lot too.

Farm girl - I don't know if he instilled a love of gardening in me or if it was already there. And I can still smell the cigar, luckily he quite smoking them about 10 years ago.

Chile - Thank you about the grain mill info. I'm still looking and saving. It is a big investment!
