editor’s note

Homemade gifts beat store-bought ones every time as far as I’m concerned. But then, I’ve been blessed with talented friends and family whose handcrafted Christmas presents have always been right on the mark — for example, a kit of pre-cut fabric pieces for me to assemble into a table runner, or hand-thrown pottery bowls for serving up home-cooked stews. But the best handmade gift I ever received was from my Grandma Olga one special Christmas, when her sewing skills turned my humble Barbie doll from shabby to chic. Like many of us from a certain generation, I treasured my Barbie doll. She was a fairly high-cost investment for my parents, who were supporting a young family on a small income, so I received the doll and nothing else for a Christmas…

Dependent On Magazine Content Kate Robertson – Kansas City, Kansas Regarding “Spring Cleaning the Easy Way” by Karen Williams (Spring 2018, Pages 26-29) and “Handy Household Uses for Coconut Oil” by Victoria Pitcher (Spring 2018, Page 39) Kudos to the Capper’s Farmer staff for putting together such an amazing magazine. I love all the recipes. A lot of magazines use recipes that call for ingredients I’ve never heard of, but not my Capper’s Farmer. You folks know how to cook! All of your recipes look delicious, and although my attempts seldom turn out looking like your pictures, they still taste great. My husband can’t wait for each new issue, because he knows he’ll soon be a guinea pig for a new dish – a job he never gets tired of. I also get lots of…

In addition, any plans, catalogs, brochures, and other offers advertised in this department are no longer available, so please do not send money and/or a request for them. — Editors A Spring for Pump Pipe By Mrs.Alex Irvine Riley County, Kansas The inconvenience of having the water pipe leading to the stock tank drop to the ground when detached from the pump may be avoided by placing a strong spring from the pipe to the framework of the windmill at a point where the pipe passes under the tower. This allows the pipe to be pushed from the spout, and yet remain near at hand. A Good Way to…
