The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
this year. Putting up hay is avery hot job in this weather.Susan, 17, Verena, 15, andBenjamin are detasselingcorn, which is also a very hot job. The factories that Joe andElizabeth, 19, work in do nothave air conditioning, so theyget pretty warm on days likethese.The young children have been staying cool by fillingtubs of water and then havinga water battle. Those are al-ways fun and sometimeseveryone joins in.I canned Seranno peppersthis week. Today I need tocan pickles. Joe picked twofive gallon size buckets of cu-cumbers. We are havingtomatoes and lots of zucchinito add to our menus. I alsocanned black raspberryfreezer jam with the berriesTimothy has on his property.Benjamin had a nice 14th birthday on Sunday. I made achocolate cake and decoratedit for him. We didn’t do any-thing special for our 20th an-niversary on the 15th. Wherehave these years gone?It is only 8 a.m. and the sunfeels warm already. Josephand I watered the gardenswith the sprinkler. The hosewouldn’t reach the one cor-ner, so we watered that with buckets. It’s time consuming, but it is dry and needs rain.It sure feels good to finallysit down and prop up my feetin front of a fan after ashower. It has been hot andhumid this week. We have been trying to shade the win-dows from the sun. We havea wraparound porch towardsthe east and south which pro-vides some shade.It’s when the sun shinesfrom the west, that we feelthe heat. In the house we pullthe shades to block out thesun until it goes down.We use battery-poweredfans, but it seems on hot dayslike this they just blow thewarm air around.Growing up at home wedidn’t have any fans. In Dad’slater years he finally bought asmall battery-powered squarefan to help him get throughhay fever season.My husband, Joe, and sonsBenjamin, 14, and Joseph,10, with the help of the neigh- bors, put 400 bales of hay inour barn this week that wehad bought from the neigh- bors. Plans are to get our haycut this week yet. Joe doesn’tthink we will have enough aswe put one field into beansThe Good Lord will provide.We have so much to be thank-ful for. Do we appreciate themany blessings we have? Letus thank God daily for our blessings!Laundry is also on our listto do today, so I’ll sign off wishing all of you readersGod’s many blessings.Try this recipe with your fresh garden goodies.
