Eté présent - Summertime 2010 poppies

With a properly minded Amish farm in the background. Better seen large On Black. We had set up tent on their grounds earlier the night before because of special circumstances - and were unexpectedly invited to join their breakfast family style, an unforgettable experience. They were so authentic, kind and welcoming - *seven* children were seated at the table with their parents. First time too, I heard a mockingbird -had mistakenly thought there were a dozen varieties of birds in the trees ;-)


Highlighted on Flickr's Explorer Front Page for a while.


To understand what small farms like this one are up against, read these notes by J. Emord


Views from inside the farm and elsewhere in Amish country.


And a neat blog about how to eat delicious and healthiest foods - this from a couple living not too far away in NE Ohio
