Grocery Shopping - Amish Style
I'm always excited when the amish-owned produce stands open for the season. This farm, located in Loganton, Pennsylvania, is home to three families. They have a beauiful new produce stand (on the right, where the truck is parked) where they sell produce from their gardens. On this visit I bought a half bushel of shell peas.
I love peas, and two years ago I shelled a bushel. After blanching and freezing the peas, we eat them all winter. Last year I had to buy peas at a local grocery store.

So I'm doing them again this year. I planted some this spring, but realized after they came up that I had planted the snow peas. So I'll try to get more in the ground for this fall.
Tonight though, I saved some peas and we're having home grown chicken with homemade cream of celery soup gravy, fresh peas, sauteed yellow squash and egg noodles.
I feel very Amish.

catching up on your journals here... thank you so much for taking me to this place today! I will upload the videos soon. I loved this place! I'm trying to retrace our steps and remember how we got there. :) I'm just so excited about the choices I made buying produce & groceries. What a neat experience to look into the people's eyes and making a connection to the people who have grown the food I will be putting into my families bellies.
