Today was another beautiful day here in good ole Saint Mary's county. I feel so blessed to live in this county with all the local farms within a 30 minute drive.
The best farms that I have found are the Amish farms in Loveville. The men and woman that run the little farm stands are always so polite and friendly. They are always willing to talk and share their knowledge with anyone who ask. They are always willing to share growing tips for anything you are trying to grow. Share recipes for jams,jellys,breads and whoopie pies. The most important thing is they are extremely honest and they are always willing to try and correct the situation if they might have done something wrong or if they think the vegetables are not up to their standards.
This is the total oppisite of what my neighbors had told about the Amish. My neighbors had described them as a stand offish people who looked down on anyone not Amish. So untrue. I have found them to be a great people keeping with their tradtions and customs. They revere God and live by his 10 commandments. Yes they are different in as such as they do not use electric, do not drive automobiles, never work on Sunday and treat each other and others with respect and kindness. I wish some of the people that I know could learn alittle from the Amish when it comes to treating people. I love their spirit and I have never ever met a harder working people.
I always look foward to my trip to Amish country.
