Red Barn on Laundry Day
So this post is appearing in June and it is hot and humid outside. Really hot. Really humid.
I prefer the "in between" of springtime or fall, but if forced to choose between really hot and humid and cold... I'd rather be hot.
This picture shows laundry on the line to dry in winter. I guess the clothes get dryer, but I doubt they get dry. The Amish sell drying racks and I'm guessing they sit inside next to the stove with the laundry from the day getting the final dry.
We own a couple of these laundry racks and they are really handy.
And the other thing to note in this picture is the "cover crop" on the garden. We all plant cover crops on our gardens to have some organics to till back into the soil in the spring. The most popular cover crop for the Amish seems to be radishes (I think). Pam plants a grass of some kind for her "cover crop".
