"Traditions"

In the small town of Charlotte Court House, where the Amish call home, they have continued a tradion of being good farmers. The Amish took over poor soil and enriched it through their hard work and good sense.

It is not unusual to find the Amish selling their wonderful homegrown vegetables, baked breads, flowers, herbs, and other goods in the local markets.

I purchase goods from the Amish every time I have the opportunity.From herb plants to homemade bread, their skillful dedication is always apparent. Just this morning my daughter Teri and I visited The Farmers Market at Forest. We purchased cinnamon raisin buns, blackberry jam and sweet dill pickles from the Amish twin brothers.

Summer

Honeysuckle sweet growth on the vine

Blackberries ripen under the sun

Warm summer days transport me back in time

When I was wild,carefree and young

Days swimming in the waterhole, nights catching fireflies

Fresh night breeze, lying under starry skies.
