Monday, September 21, 1936

plesant all day
Cool morning and evening but warm during the day-
Canned 3 pts of pickled pears* and picked a dish pan of tomatoes-
Harry called this evening on his way over to Iliffs'
Sent a letter to Hannah-
The well pumps like going dry-

Spiced Pickled Pears*

*I found a great spiced pickled pear recipe on the blog Headspace. Check it out HERE. <image from Headspace: A Cooking & Canning Blog- October 9, 2011>


  1. I think I might have to try that recipe. The threat of the well going dry must have been scary.

    1. I'm not much of a canner, but I love pears, & this recipe sounds great.


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