A photo of GaFarm Woman PamThis is a small collection from many photos I have of our life on a rural Georgia farm that I wanted to share with you.

Grinding oats with the hammer mill. The hammer mill is a  Harvey Hammer Mill from the 1940s. It is old but is still works just fine. The hammer mill is powered by our 1953 Case Tractor.

Our 1953 Case tractor.  We bought it over 33 years ago. The first picture is right after we bought it when we were a young married couple and our oldest son was a toddler. It still cranks right up and is always ready to work.

Hi Bill, Here is a few links to the incubator. My husband put 16 inches of insulation in the top of the building. I think 6 inches in the walls and underneath the floor.Plus Styrofoam sheets over the wall insulation. I hope that will help some. Thanks for the interest in the walk in incubator. Pam

Thank-you Oz Girl! We are working on more wood floors(living room and dining room) cut from trees off the farm now. We hope to be sanding and clear coating soon. Have a great day. Pam

Hi Glenda, We are in East Central Ga. I grew up in Gwinnett county and the dirt up that way is much more of the red Georgia clay. Here it is a sandy gray clay. I know you miss the clean clothes smell from clothes hanging on the line. Especially the sheets! Thanks for the comment. Pam
