setting potatoes


set vTo a great extent Old Perlican was left to the women from Spring to late Fall but the gardens were never neglected up to the time when Newfoundland joined in Confederation with Canada, the men might be seen in the gardens in May plowing the ground and _setting_ potatoes, digging in the cabbage _gardens_ and making agriculture easier for the women to do. Then the women were happy to look after the gardens and do any other work that fell to their hands. And those were the good old days and no one compalined so long as there was a cow in the barn, milk and butter on the table, a pig or young bull to kill in the early winter. Old Perlican was a land flowing with milk and . . . vegetables.PRINTED ITEM G.M. Story JAN 1978JH JAN 1978Not usedNot usedWithdrawnThe source and date is stamped twice on the card
