Vince was off yesterday for the 4th of July holiday. It was raining when we woke up so we decided to have breakfast, then head up to the Amish store to get there shortly after they opened at 8. When we got up there . . I couldn’t believe it! I’ve never seen so many cars there. I’m guessing there were at least 20 vehicles parked here and there and more turning in behind us. It was raining pretty hard and I guess everyone decided to go to the Amish store.
One day I’m going to figure out that going there means more work for me! 🙂
When we got out of the car, I could smell peaches! Don’t you love peaches that smell like peaches? You know they’re going to taste like peaches too! We came home with new potatoes, peaches, blackberries, blueberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, fresh chickens and I’m not sure what else.
I made a peach pie! I think I probably say this about every pie I make but peach might be my favorite. I put up 8 quarts and 1 pint of peach pie filling, 6 pints and 6 jelly jars of peach jam, 4 packs of corn for the freezer and I still have 40 ears to do today. The blueberries and blackberries just went in the fridge . . in the ziplock bags. I’ll do something with them . . probably freeze them in 1 cup batches for cobblers or cakes.
And, right in the middle of it all, I had to stop and make a batch of Speck food. I was very, very tired! 🙁
