making it fit

Next to the garden, the sewing room is one of my favorite places to work. I love being surrounded by colorful fabrics saved up for quilts, pillows, and, lately, dresses. When I was young, everyone made their own clothes because store-bought garments were expensive. Homemade wasn’t just acceptable, it was groovy. I was proud to wear a hand-smocked peasant blouse. Back in the 1930s, my mother’s family was too poor to buy dress patterns or fabric. With her sisters, she designed and sewed clothing from printed cotton feed sacks. And my mother-in-law, who grew up on a Nebraska farm, remembers seeing the local seamstress in a beautifully fitted dress made entirely of a feed sack, which she knew because she had that same feed sack at home! This inventiveness didn’t last. Sometime in…

Correction: We Made a Mistake! We inadvertently published the wrong author’s name in “Sharing Perennials” (Page 58) in the Spring 2019 issue of Capper’s Farmer. The correct author is Laura Sweet. We sincerely apologize for the error. — Editors Living Off the Land Benjamin Edwards — The Plains, Ohio I’m 91, and when I was growing up, we did things the “old way” in terms of farming and food preservation. My father was born in 1899, and my mother in 1901. They both grew up in the Appalachian region, and they shared accounts of living off the land in a time when more people grew their own food and butchered their own livestock. Foods were either canned, fermented, dried, or cured. Ham and bacon were well-salted and often smoked with hardwood, which meant they’d keep…

Foam Floor Mats Designed to look like area rugs, Comfort Design Mats are made with half-inch-thick, cushiony-soft, nontoxic foam for visual appeal, comfort, and durability. They’re waterproof and easy to clean, which makes them great for letting kids and pets play on, for doing yoga, or simply for use as a beautiful rug. They’re available in various colors and patterns, and unlike rugs, they don’t shed and they don’t accumulate stains; simply wipe them clean with a wet rag. The mats measure 6 1/2 feet by 4 1/2 feet, and are made with high-quality materials so they’ll last a long time. Available at MSRP: $150 This mat works great inside the back door to catch the mud and dirt the dogs and humans track in; just wipe it off, and it looks good…
