Transformations: What I Like About Summer

 The Blog Tech and I hit the road last Saturday and headed north looking for farm stands.

 Nice barn, I guess all of those cupolas are for ventilation.

 Abundant fields thanks to all of the June rain.

 Amish country, farm stands are immanent.

 A buggy driven by a woman.

 Corn.


 Good weather for hay making.

 We forgot our camera so he used his phone.

 The payoff for these trips is what all of our fresh finds are turned into as soon as we return.  We scored red new potatoes.

And some new garlic.
The potatoes were cubed and the garlic was diced.
They were turned into buttered parsley potatoes using Amish butter and they were wonderful.
 We bought some candy onions...

 a big cabbage....

 some fresh carrots..

and made a very good coleslaw.

 The raspberries were eaten on cereal.

 The cherries were just eaten.


The first corn of the season was oven roasted.
And blueberries...
 were baked in a pie.


 A few cherry tomatoes picked from the garden and we had a wonderful Summer lunch.
