Visting Amish Country

In the midst of this killer heatwave, we are trying to stay cool and distract ourselves any way we can.  A car trip with A/C makes for a good escape. We headed to Amish country.  This has been perfect weather for making hay.
We spy our first buggy.  I can't imagine how hot they are.  It's in the upper 90's.                                                                  
A trusty steed.
Pulling a buggy and trailer.                
                         It always cracks me up seeing last years corn growing through this years crop rotation, soy beans.

 Fall planting.

 Why can I totally imagine living here?!

 A stop to chat with Andy and pick up some fresh veggies.  I bought honey and god forbid, more maple syrup.  I couldn't pass it up, his prices were the lowest I've seen all year.

And it's tough to find fresher honey, the hives sit about 30 feet away.  What are you doing to stay cool?
