From Old Times

The topic of Makrotex is OLD TIMES.
I have a few rusty old items in the garden, including a Singer sewing machine
on top of which there is a planter. And this rusty thing is one of them.
This metal cover used to protect liquid for AIV silage.

Wikipedia: Artturi Ilmari Virtanen (1895 – 1973) was a Finnish chemist and recipient of the 1945 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his research and inventions in agricultural and nutrition chemistry, especially for his fodder preservation method”. He invented AIV silage which improved milk production and a method of preserving butter, the AIV salt, which led to increased Finnish butter exports.

This is a big iron cauldron which were used in saunas heating the water.
When grandkids were small we roasted sausages in it with an open fire.
Another hosts some plants.

Wishing Sunny Summer Days!

  4. Tuli mieleen vanha hokema, onkohan sinulle tuttu: Aa, ii, vee, rehu-rehu-rehu, turhaan emme kehu-kehu-kehu.
    Kaikkea sitä päässä onkaan!
