Re: Laundry Question

The plungers are the best. Or by hand in the tub and just buy a hand crank wringer/hang to dry. Those are easy to find and can clamp to pretty much anything. I also have antique scrub boards. They are, at present, simply decoration in my laundry room. I even have a small one for delicates... :shock:...

Re: Farming/livestock etc

My girls wintered well even with the $&@? cold winter! The roo (Cluck Norris) unfortunately had some frostbite on his comb this year- tried everything I could to avoid that.
