Amish Cook 08-21

I decided to write for Mom this week. It has been awhile since I wrote the column.  I just came home from de-tasseling corn not too long ago.  The corn was extra wet this morning since we got all that rain.  I don’t really mind de-tasseling corn unless it is really tall.  August 11 will be our de-tasseling picnic because we will be done.

Tonight I will help sister Susan take our miniature pony that she is training for a ride.  She takes it down the road past tractors and big trucks so it gets used to traffic and all noises.  Tiny Tim is her newest pony that she is training. He is doing pretty good but he still likes taking us in the ditch once in awhile.  I think it is neat to see how different all the pony behaviors are.  Tiny Tim has to be trained  so it takes a lot of working with him.
