The Amish Cook prepares another scrumptious dish

By: Lovina Eicher

This morning the temperature was 51 degrees. We went out to weed and hoe in the garden after the morning housework was done. It was cool when we started but the warm sun soon made it get hot. We came in to eat some lunch and take a break.

With church services being held here twice recently the gardens were neglected more than usual this past month. Everything is growing real well. We are getting enough rain that we don’t need to water the garden.  Tomatoes are loaded on the plants and the corn is past knee-high already. We are already enjoying hot peppers. We planted Seranno and banana peppers. The bananas will soon be big enough to stuff with cream cheese and Colby cheese then wrap with bacon and grill. We like the banana peppers better than the jalapeno peppers to do those as they aren’t as hot.  We have also been enjoying lettuce, radishes, and green onions from our  garden for quite some time.
