Sewing, canning, clotheslines, aprons, raising chickens....people seem to be going back to old fashioned living and I love it!

What do you still do that's considered old fashioned?

Not really. I don't think I'd care for it much honestly.

Literally nothing. I don't care for the old-fashioned way. The modern world works fine for me. :)

Never saw the point of an apron. It's just some mote clothes I gotta wash. Might as well wash my clothes I'm wearing.
I hang clothes up to dry during the summer. Always have. Can't have chickens our landlord would kill them then claim he has no clue. I don't sew all our clothes, but I patch them. And I don't can because I don't have fresh veggies or fruit. Because I can't grow them because the landlord doesn't want his lawn ruined. No one wants to can old grocery store veggies.

I do most of that, though no chickens.  My neighbors had them for a while and that was close enough for me.  But I do cook and bake from scratch, grow vegetables and fruits, dry tomoates and figs from the garden, sew, make preserves and dry clothes outside.

I do a good amount of canning. I just made pickles and strawberry jam. I also made apple sauce.
