Shots From the Week

Although I haven't been surfing the blog-o-sphere much this past weekend, life has been dashing along as usual here in Smalltownland. Just take a look at the excitement...... 

 A Cardinal wondering where all the birdseed went.




Small town traffic jam in action. 



Men riding the tobacco "setter".  They feed the small plants into the mechanism that puts them into the ground.  This went on all day for these men.  



A friendly face on the top of a garden arbor here in town.  



A Smalltownland doorway dating back to the early 1800's.

  17. I'm so glad you posted that picture of the tobacco setter - my husband and I watched something similar happening in France and couldn't work out whether they were doing it by hand or having help from a machine! It's so clever!

  18. love thecardinal. I have never seen a "setter" - that is so interesting. I bet it is still a lot faster than digging & planting by hand.
