Andrea Krist from the Minnesota Historical Society shares what it was like growing food for winter in 1850s Minnesota:
The gardens are too weedy, as multiple commenters pick up on in the comments section. That is one of the perils of a volunteer organization as compared to an true family garden. If you are relying on your garden to get you through the winter – especially a terribly cold Minnesota winter! – you don’t let the weeds overrun your beds.
Other than that, though, it is an excellent look at the past, from clothing to gardening methods.
