Tom bought this book at a thrift store the other day. There is no date on this print, but the original one is from 1820.
There is a cure for whooping cough which is somewhat fascinating.
There is another for rabies.
There is a recipe for getting chickens to lay more eggs.
And another to get sheep to grow more wool.
We do have rabbit dung, but I am not sure I am willing to make a powder of it much less feed it to our chickens. But the question is should I buy buttermilk for our next shearing day?
In unrelated news, here are the homegrown peaches that I canned this morning.
buttermilk, eh? sounds like a crazy mess to me!
Can you imagine trying to get buttermilk onto just shorn sheep!?!
