2014 is halfway over already. Hard to believe!

The sun is shining after a rainy week so we are taking advantage of the beautiful day. Benjamin, Joseph, Lovina, and Kevin are out in the garden pulling weeds. My how those weeds took over! Our garden is looking great other than the weeds.

Try this delicious homemade zucchini scramble recipe by the Amish Cook Print E-mail

It is Thursday already and time to get this column out in today’s mail. It hardly seems like two weeks have passed since I penned the last column. I was very happy that daughter Verena offered to write last week in my place. She loves to write so she didn’t have a problem about not getting the length of the column written. It helped out so much that I didn’t have to take time out of our busy summer schedule to write. Sometimes I can write a column in just a matter of minutes. Then there are times when so much work awaits me that I find it difficult to concentrate on writing.

Try this beef nacho casserole recipe for your next backyard barbecue Print E-mail

Hello! This is Lovina’s daughter, Verena. Mom has been extra busy lately, so I wanted to help her out by writing the column for her this week.

Washing dishes, sweeping and mopping floors,  and watering flowers has filled my day. With having sisters Loretta-13 and Lovina-10 home from school, they can help out a lot around the house already. I like to send Lovina after my things when I feel a little lazy. Smile!

Delicious pie recipe homemade by the Amish Cook Print E-mail

By Lovina Eicher

It is a rainy Wednesday in June as I write this. Son Kevin’s class went to a state park in Indiana today for their school field trip, I am hoping the weather is nicer there. The temperature never went over 60 degrees so far today so it could be chilly for their nature walk through the woods.

Tonight, at 6:30 p.m., is the eight grade graduation at the school. Our fourth child, son Benjamin, will be amongst the rest of graduating from the eighth grade. This will conclude his school years. Nephew Jacob will also graduate from eight grade. Also two of Timothy’s (daughter Elizabeth’s friend) nephews are with the group graduating. One of the teachers told me this week how sad she will be to see these four boys leaving the school. She said they were always a joy to have in class.

Chocolate cake recipe by the Amish Cook Print E-mail

By Lovina Eicher

It is Tuesday evening. I’m sitting out here on the front porch and it is very quiet, almost too quiet. My sisters Verena and Susan wanted our five school-age children to come off the bus there and spend the night. They will go back on the bus in the morning. Sister Emma’s three boys also went. They have eight children there from ages six to 14 so I’m sure their evening is quite noisier than usual.

The sun is shining this afternoon. We had a thunderstorm early this morning. The rain kept us out of the garden today. Last night Joe and the children helped get more garden planted. We didn’t get finished yet so hopefully it’ll dry up soon. Our soil is very sandy and dries fast so that helps. We now have planted onions, radishes, lettuce, peas, potatoes, red beets, green beans, cucumbers, corn, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cabbage, banana and hot peppers. Need to plant more corn, watermelon, zucchini and more potatoes yet. So far we have potatoes, peas, radishes, onions, lettuce and corn coming up. Everything is late this year.

Amish Cook shares delicious asparagus and cheese canape recipe Print E-mail

By Lovina Eicher

Another rainy day! It has been rainy all week. We were able to get all the clothes dried on Monday even though there was a shower after the clothes were on the lines. We need to do laundry again and sure am hoping for a nice day on Friday or Saturday.

Tonight the men from our church district will gather here to practice singing songs from the Ausbund, our German church songbook. It is a good way to get the younger men to learn how to lead all the songs. I need to make something today for a snack to serve to them after the singing.

It is beautiful May morning with the sun shining and the temperature already in the 60s, a perfect day for gardening!

We had a nice but cool day on Sunday to host church services. It was council meeting so church left out around 2:30 p.m. Services began at 9 a.m. Around 11:15 a.m., we had everything ready to begin serving lunch. We had table settings for 34 people at a time.
