Any Farm

worth its salt has a "Bone Yard" or a parts store where pieces wait, sometimes for years, to be useful again.

They make great photo fodder.

we don't have a farm but we do have stuff like this, or similar. that big bolt in the middle of the first object bob has a very large bucket full of those.. he will never use them never has but he has them... his garage is full of stuff he MIGHT need, never mind he has not needed them for 27 years

No farm here either but we just cleared a bunch of stuff just like that from the tool shed and the work shop.

Yes! My great grandfather had a farm and I loved that place. In college, I took a photography class and took many pictures from the parts and rusty equipment on the farm. i loved the old barn and fences... that farm was lost to our family a few years ago and that is a jaw-dropping story all by itself. Though I'm not sure it's mine to tell.

They do indeed! Rust never sleeps. And some of these; I am not quite sure what they are, probably parts of things. So, what is your overall record for re-use?

My dad sold farm equipment and he kept everything, every piece of metal. His nickname was Scrapiron. :)

The minute you get rid of a piece, you know you will need it. Leave it lay.

We call ours 'the dump' and it was started way before we bought the farm. The previous owners had been here for 50 years and it was owned before by her father when the road out front was just a dirt road used by horses and buggies.

Back when our grandson was just 12 or so he came rolling an iron wheel down the lane from the dump to the house. He said there was another one and did we want it? Gramps went back with him and I now have them at the entrance to our drive. They are special to me because of him finding them and knowing I would want them.

We add to it now and then.

Reminds me somehow of my childhood.

Pretty cool photography subjects. Love the idea of a bone yard where old things wait to be made new again.

Oh Gail they do indeed ... but you never know when something may come in handy and useful again!

All the best Jan
