A Day in Amish Country, PA

A day trip through several Lancaster county towns - Intercourse & Bird in Hand - in search of the ripest tomatoes for our summer scrumptious garlic soup proved fruitful. We stopped at several roadside stands, an organic marketplace and the outlet stores. Before a smorgasbord dinner at Shady Maple's restaurant, we ate freshly made soft pretzels and sloppy ripe peaches, a true summertime treat. The sun shined all day long and a cool breeze melted away the humidity. Now, this is filling up that unforgiving minute with real substance.
