Smell That Fresh Country Air...

I made the mistake of hanging out our bath towels to dry on Saturday...

It was a gorgeous drying day, with a strong south air, but...


...it was also a great day for hauling pit manure.

Take a whiff...can you smell that fresh country air?

  1. Haha that is cute. They must have been putting down lots of manure. My husband used to work at a Carrot plant and the water they used to rinse the carrots went down into a sump. They would have to dredge the sumps every so often. I imagine the spreading of the manure would smell the same way.
    Not what you want your laundry to smell like. :)

  5. I like the team of mules used to pull the tank. Are your neighbors Amish? I was so impressed by the beautiful and well cared for animals owned by the farmers I saw in Amish country. Manure spreading smell---not so much.

  7. I was always told that manure was the smell of money :)
    Know what you mean about picking days for line drying. Around here it is the smell of smoke...uggg. Have put a clothes rack up in the spare bedroom for drying clothes. I really dislike using my dryer in the warm weather. You know me and how I like to see clothes drying on a line :)
    Love the picture!

  9. Oops, usually it is nice to snuggle into sheets hung out on the line. I may get grass clippings in ours, but that is about the worst of it. Hope they got a second washing :-)

  11. Oh dear...
    Well, that's what comes with living in the country I suppose :)
    Around here... it's Thursdays that you want to be careful hanging the wash; as that's the day that the turkey plant processes.
    Burning feathers...nice....NOT!
    We're pretty lucky that we don't smell it every week, just once in a while when the wind blows just right.

    I love, love, love that wagon and team. How great!!

    Drat about you selling your dehydrator! No lie... dried pears~~ they are better than chocolate!!
