Hi, I have an old cast iron tub that I would like to see go to a good home - thought someone might enjoy making it part of their garden. A photo is attached. I believe I have all 4 claw foot feet (only one is shown attached in the photo.)
Would you please share this info with ppl in your gardening circle and they can contact me and make an offer. The tub is located at my place about 5 miles from Whitewood, near St. Onge. New owner would need to come and pick it up. Thanks for your help.

Drowning In Tomatoes? Try Something Different This Year.


If you’re a home gardener about to drowned in tomatoes rolling in off the vines and demanding to be consumed before they go bad, hang on. Here comes a life preserver.

I chop up a small bowlful of fresh very ripe tomatoes, add chopped red onion or scallions, minced garlic, chopped fresh basil, and extra-virgin olive oil.  I sometimes add Kalamata olives. I make this dish in the morning and let it set on the kitchen table all day. By evening meal time, the flavors have melded nicely, and I serve it over hot cooked spaghetti noodles and top it with fresh grated parmesan for an easy meal on a hot summer day.
