Monday, May 11, 1936

plesant all day warm
Charles plowed the garden
Harry set out hollyhock* plants and sowed the grass seed and took Mother and I to Ithaca this afternoon-
He bought a qt of ice cream for supper-
I made pie plant** pie and stewed sauce and cooked dandelion greens and made a cake-
Mother nervous and difficult all day
Harry left this eve-
^Got a Mothers Day card from Geo & Bertha & family-

Rhubarb pie recipe from the rhubarb capital of the world**


*Hollyhocks are biennials, so Harry is planting them to bloom next summer.

**Pie plant (or pieplant) refers to rhubarb. For everything rhubarb, checkout the website for Sumner, WA: The Rhubarb Capital of the World. The above recipe image came from HERE.

^This sentence was written up the left, outside edge of the diary entry.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
