Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Harvesting the Pilgrim Garden





Ten muskmelon this year- it is the first time we have had melons that actully got ripe enough to eat and that the wild critters did not beat us to!





The tops of the tomatoes are not as yellow as they appear!


















Not everything I tried to grow this year was successful. I an not sure if it was weather, seed that was bad or, my lack of skill.
I did however have good luck with a big portion of the garden.













Green beans snapped and ready to cook for tonight's supper!

So lucky you are that you can even GROW ANYTHING....we have so much shade that even flowers don't grow well.

That Cantaloupe looks absolutely delicious!
