fish fry at Timothy’s house.Timothy and Elizabethcooked supper outdoors. Wasvery enjoyable to relax andnot have to cook.Elizabeth and Loretta wentto clean Timothy’s house onSaturday. I told Elizabeth bring his laundry here towash on Monday.She brought his curtains,extra bedding, etc to wash aswell. Using our spinner, our laundry and his dried reallyfast on the lines. With Timo-thy working long hours it’shard for him to keep up withthe housework all the time.Last week we made quite afew batches of strawberryfreezer jam. My rhubarbs arelooking very nice since therains, so I want to make onemore batch of juice.We are enjoying red pota-toes, peas, green peppers andhot peppers from the garden.Have small zucchinis almostready to pick. Red beets areready to use, but am leavingthem get bigger to pack pickled beets. Tomato plants are loadedwith tomatoes and corn is look-ing nice again.Our sweet onions are gettingvery big and doing extra well.The cooking onions I storeover the winter are doing greatas well. Meal planning is somuch easier with the gardengoodies. Joe planted another patch of sweet corn yesterdayfor later use.Son Kevin, 7, does not getalong with our rooster. Heusually gathers the eggs andhas had a few surprises from behind from that rooster.It is July 3 and 2013 is half over already. We have beenhaving lots of rain.

We then went to seehow their daughter Elizabethis faring since her surgery onThursday. She is doing aswell as can be expected.The men and boys playedcroquet while the rest of usvisited. The eight-player cro-quet set was a Father’s Daygift to Joe and has been played many times since.Corn de-tasseling should be starting any day. Daugh-ters Susan and Verena went tohelp rogue the corn on Satur-day. If I understand correctly“to rogue” the corn is to takeout the tall unwanted corn-stalks out of the cornfields.This is done before the cornis de-tasseled.The fields were over a milelong and each person takes 12rows at a time. After all thisrain it made for some toughwalking. Their shoes werecaked with mud when theycame home.On Friday we enjoyed aWe also have a hen with a bad attitude. Daughter Susancame out to the barn andheard this hen really squawk-ing. She could not keep fromlaughing when she seenKevin and the hen face toface and the hen’s featherswere all raised. Kevin had anegg aimed to throw at the henfor his protection.Kevin keeps us all laughing.He wanted to help me mixLoretta’s birthday cake, butafter cracking the first egg toohard, it fell on the counter-top.He did manage to get the othersin the bowl. We made the cakewhile Loretta was outside sit-ting on the swing. We hid ituntil supper time, so Lorettacould be surprised. God’s blessings.Try this salad with your garden lettuce.
