First stop: The pumpkin patch! (My header photo!)
|Which one should I choose?|
After the pumpkin patch we walked into the old farm house. Two women were giving a demonstration on how to make sauerkraut. Did you know that it only takes cabbage and salt to make sauerkraut? At least that's how it was made back then!
The cabbage is sliced,
And then packed into large crocks with lots of salt between the layers. Cover the cabbage and let it ferment in a dark, cool place for six weeks. Wah-lah! You have sauerkraut!
Don't know if this was a working stove or not; regardless - I sure like the looks of it!
We left the kitchen and went out back to where some kids were playing with old fashioned toys. One of them were these short "stilts". We stood and watched a few people try to walk on them. Even though they were only about 5 inches off the ground, they really had a hard time. Dave picked the two wooden stilts up, and with a quick instruction from the girl standing there in the old-fashioned dress, he was up and walking pretty quick!
I thought this little boy looked so cute playing with this toy.
Lily, herself, got to play with a toy from yesteryear.
