I have had a couple of Depression era friends who have shared not only their friendship and kindness but also a morsel of their knowledge. Their youth during the late 20’s and early 30’s taught them things I never even knew to consider or even existed. This picture shows a few kitchen tools from the era. Learn their purpose and more about surviving and thriving during an era when one’s greatest resources were knowledge, physical ability, and willingness to work rather than money. Our society has lost and is losing those who hold this valuable knowledge every day. Here is a sampling.

We live about 25 miles from the closest grocery store in the beautiful mountains of Oregon. We strive to provided a good majority of our food for ourselves &/or find it locally while at the same time eating what we consider to be the healthiest diet and creating as little refuse/garbage as possible (down to about 6 bags per year.) It takes great balance to juggle all these balls at once, and at times we are more successful than others. C'mon along; we enjoy the company.
