Working Early

It always amazes me how much Andy and Lizzy have to take into consideration in their everyday life.  Some describe the Amish way of life a simple life.  I can guarantee you that there is nothing simple about the way they have chosen to live their lives.  They are very hard working people.  Last week the weather was very hot and very humid.  They try to do most of their work either early in the morning or late at night.  Especially when they are using the horses.  They try to work them early and late and keep them in the shade during the hottest time of the day.  Their horses are a very important part of the farm.  Without them many of the chores could not be done.

This week we were surprised by some blackberries.  Andy and Lizzy don't grow these (but Lizzie does have a few growing)  They are grown organically by one of their neighbors.  When I opened the box this week I could smell the bundle of basil.  I want to remind everyone that there is a baked and canned goods sheet also.  You can find that here.  If you want to order something for next weeks delivery, please send an email soon.

This week will be just a little busier for Andy and Lizzy.  They are busy getting things ready for the church services that will be held at their house on Sunday.  I have learned that the Amish do not have an actual church building.  Instead they hold their church services in each other's homes.

I see in my future some kale chips, grilled onions, a mess of fried green tomatoes, zucchini bread, a blackberry pie and something Italian.

Just what I needed for that something Italian.

We are enjoying our CSA share...wish you would join us.  It is really simple...just email
