My Great Grandmother

No, this post does not have any reference to farming. Today, actually most of this week's weather has not been conducive or encouraging for those of us who work the soil and grow crops. Occasional wet snow and rain combined with cold temperatures are not drying the fields. What started out as an early spring is , day by day, turning into an average or maybe a late spring.
I suppose I might have put the photo over on the Nevard blog but I'd already done an entry there today so here is the photo for today.
My great grandmother, Sarah (Wagstaff) Nevard posing in front of her home at 36 Straight Road, Lexden , Essex, U.K. At age 95 she was still capable of baking bread as evidenced by the two loaves she is holding. Pretty impressive.  


  1. We'd probably ALL live longer if we stayed active!

  2. I love homemade bread. My Mom once bought a bread machine. It worked better than her arthritic fingers. However the raisins tended to end up on the bottom.

  3. Budde, me too. I put nearly as many hours on my bread machine as I do on my tractor. :-)

  4. That's a nice picture. You've got to stay active.
    Never used a bread machine. Guess I need to put that on my bucket list.
