One Cool Colonial–Episode 8: In a Pickle?

As we all know, the Library will soon be opening its doors. It will feel so good to be back at work and I look forward to seeing you all again. It has been a long time, hasn’t it?

The past few months I have been fortunate to use my work time (and play time) at home telling a story… several at this point. I wasn’t able to use Radnor Library in the same way. You would say the same.

But thanks to my cool colonial neighbor Clarissa, I could still create some experiences to share with you. They were just different.

In colonial times, most work was done at home. Most food was grown at home, preserved and cooked at home. Working from home was just the way it was.

So here’s to turnip wine and pickled purslane. Good riddance to scorzonera!

And let’s raise a glass of that turnip wine to the Year of the Woman in 2020!

This is one of our favorite episodes. Enjoy!
