Be sure to head on over to the Henningstead Organic Farm for pick-your-own blackberries and fresh cut rhubarb this week.
Last Sunday, Ken Harvey and Nancy Comstock took a drive to Monroe County, where they bought delicious peaches and visited with Nancy’s daughter, Wynne and her family. They enjoyed watching the kids splash around in the pool and play together, and to see Wynne’s vegetable garden. On Monday, they drove to Oxford, N.Y., where they met Nancy’s other daughter, Emmie, and her family at a blueberry farm. They picked lots of berries and then bought a take-out lunch to eat in the park. Nancy’s grandson, little Oliver is always so cute and funny. On Tuesday, Nancy’s son Steve and his family came up for a barbecue and picnic dinner in Nancy’s yard.

Saturday, Ginger Howell and I took a road trip to Wysox, to Shore Sisters for canning peaches. Of course, before we headed home, we stopped at the Country Cottage for their ice cream.

I hope you all survived the heat and humidity this past week. I appreciate the air conditioner during these times. I remember when we only had fans. Speaking of memories, I enjoy seeing the milk tanker go by our house every other day, as it brings back memories. Eddie used to haul milk cans to the creamery in Laceyville every day. That milk truck sure did put on a lot of miles. It was always a treat for the kids to go on the milk truck run with their dad.
With the garden producing well, we were able to get some vegetables canned this past week. Now we have our peaches, that will be next on the agenda to get canned. The gardens could still use a little rain.
Don’t forget to check in on your neighbors to see if they need anything, whether it be a conversation, something cold, food or maybe a trip to the store.
Something to think about: “God gave you 86,400 seconds today…Use at least one of them to say “Thank You!”
