Friday Favorite: Relics

April 4th, 2014

Back in Ohio, it was very common to unearth relics while working in the garden. It’s no different here in Maine. Last year I remember picking up dozens of things that were buried during the previous years of ownership. Just this week, the chickens dug up this yellow cup in a small patch of woods by the garage.

The pigs also unearthed loads of goodies in their woodland area last summer.

Then there are the bulldozer tracks up the garage.

And every now and then I find a piece of trash that blows in from somewhere.

These things all provide an interesting history of the people who have lived here before us.  No doubt many more things will be unearthed as I expand the gardens.  I wonder what I will find next.

Have you found interesting things in your garden?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
