Pioneer Fair


Yesterday Serena traveled back in time to the Stewart Farmhouse built by Surrey pioneer John Stewart in 1894.  If she were a pioneer girl like Laura or Mary Ingalls whom she adores (Serena is onto the third book in the Little House series), she would perhaps find herself:


fetching buckets of water...

milking the cows...

pitting cherries...

separating the cream from the milk before churning some butter...

spinning wool...

making ice-cream if she could manage 45 minutes of non-stop cranking...

tending the vegetable garden...

and if she's not too tired from the day's work, she could play with a potato sack!
