No quilting or canning today, just our treasures we have discovered.
While preparing to put in the pool (which never got put in because of all the rain this year) and the new porch we discovered lots of treasures. That is what comes from digging in the yard of a farmhouse which is over 150 years old.
The farm was called Midway Farms because it was midway between South Rockwood and Carleton, Michigan. Dh called it a truck farm, but I don't think that it became one of those until his great grandparents took over the farm. At one time there were grainereys, wells, a chicken coop, big huge barn, all which has been torn down or covered over the years.
When it was originally built by the great great grandparents they built a substantial house using Michigan Block.
Imagine my surprise while punching holes to find several blocks buried 3-4 feet in the ground, and as luck would have it almost each hole we punched there were blocks, and bricks.
