The price of tomatoes . . . and the lack thereof.

We spent most of today driving around the surrounding counties looking for tomatoes at canning prices. It's amazing. Here we are, living in one of the largest Amish/agricultural areas and only one farm was selling tomato seconds for $1.50lb. We found one little old gentleman selling some from his garden for $0.75lb, so we bought some from him, but not enough to can much.

We stopped at Sandy Hill and a local stand to get some melon, corn and peppers. We also drove out to pick up a new belt for the lawn mower. It broke the day before we left, so the yard looks like a prairie. Dad's out putting the belt on --- so guess what I'm doing in the morning?! Mom and Elizabeth are going to make a little batch of salsa with the stuff that we were able to pick up today.

We're having two new chairs delivered this next week, so it looks like we're in for a little furniture rearranging over the weekend. The cats are all little cling-on love bugs since we've gotten back. I think they missed us. I can't think of anything else to write at the moment, so I'll post more later.
