“There are few left alive now who remember those days. There were none of the new inventions of tractor driven machinery that became available to the more prosperous farmers in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. The machinery was horse or mule driven. For the women, there were no modern stoves or refrigerators. Milk and butter were kept cold by lowering the items into the cisterns in the warm summer months. Cooking stoves used for preparing meals made the kitchen extremely and almost unbearably hot in the summertime.”Frances, My Mother’s Memoirs
Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in!
Today, I am joined by my mother, Frances, to remember what it was like to live on a farm in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
We invite you to put the kettle on and add to this exciting discussion.
Thank you for joining Frances and me on Tea Toast and Trivia.
