Stiff, Frozen and Snowy Britches on the Line ~ Amish Clothes LInes ~  Sarahs Country Kitchen ~ | Amish farm, Amish culture, Amish clothing








what a wonderful life...: The ice queen...


We used to bring our clothes into the house and you could stand the Levi's up on the floor! The Sheets were like TENTS! 




Nothing in the World smells as good as sheets frozen on the line! Your bed smelled like the North Wind! It was incredible! If you live in cold country you MUST hang your sheets outside to get frozen stiff! It's unbelievable! 

...one of the indelible memories of my youth......

When we were first married my wife and I had a wringer washer not unlike the one in your picture except we cheated and had an electric motor. Also still had a magneto telephone set in the farmhouse. Converted to common battery service shortly after.

As to your other pics I think my guesses were much more interesting.

Not exactly an”old” thing but something not many suburban people experience is cow sticking. Lived on a dairy farm in 1970 and one time a cow got bloat from eating fresh alfalfa. Had to call the vet who stuck her just behind the ribs to release the gas. Not the most pleasant thing but interesting. Cow was fine right after.

Also used to help my father-in-law castrate the piglets. Cats used to fight over the testicles, loved those fresh oysters!

When I was a kid I used to carry a matchbox made out of a 16 gauge hull shoved into a 12 gauge hull. 

Waterproof, pretty much. Had kitchen matches inside.

Nowadays I guess your cell phone can make a fire.
