Here in the northeast we’re launching into gardening season. The date of the last frost is nearly upon us, and all sorts of early spring crops are already planted. Now is the time many of us concentrate almost maniacally on our flower and vegetable gardens, preparing for a summer of decorative bloom and bountiful yield.
Since feedsacks were primarily a rural phenomenon, it is only natural that some of them should celebrate gardening as well, thus our topic for this feedsack Friday. This first sack has a busy floral print, but if you look closely there are all sorts of garden implements scattered about. I’ve included a close-up at right to help find a few. This one was made in several different colorways.
The young gardeners on this next sack are tending both flower and vegetable gardens.
Though there are a number of other sacks that depict farm scenes, the following border print sack is the one that concentrates most closely on flower gardens. Shown are a half-sack overall view in the red colorway, and some detail pics in the blue:
That’s it for this edition of Feedsack Friday; stay tuned for more, both on feedsacks and on our gardens’ progress.
