I had harvested some of our great potatoes that I planted this spring yesterday and the kids begged if they could continue digging for "treasures". I said fine since I had other chores to do and nothing keeps kids busy than digging in the dirt. Soon they had a sizable pit in the garden and started coming across pieces of broken china and old mason jar pieces. We live in a house that is about 110 years old so this most likely came from quite awhile ago. Well Husband got interested and started digging too and pulled up a fully intact ink well and and interesting medicine bottle. Both very old looking.
They cleaned up amazing and shiny and now we all like to dig a little deeper in the garden than necessary!
