Amish Mowing Day

It has been a busy week giving Amish tours and managing the gallery. We had the Rhubarb fest in Lanesboro on Saturday. Unfortunately, it rained and was cool, but many people were out enjoying the rhubarb festivities. I had a request to post a Rhubarb-Blueberry Breakfast Sauce recipe, so look for that in the next couple of days.

One of the Amish families that we visit on our tour has been visiting family in Iowa. They have four children that are so much fun. I miss seeing them on our trips to their farm. I look forward to seeing them when they get back home.

Many of the Amish have been busy mowing their lawns. Most use a non-motorized push mower. Today one young Amish man was mowing his big yard, but he used a horse which pulled a mower that he could sit on. It was fun to watch and his lawn looked great–and he didn’t have to refill the gas can!!
