    Great recipe, and timely for me, as I just discovered corn chips in my pantry this morning, and was wondering how to use them up!

    Wondering if there is a lot of celery planted in their garden this year? 🙂

      Linda, we’ll see about the celery! And if you do make the salad and are able to take some photos of it for me to post, that would be great!

    Great article from Lovina. She said they had to de-tassel the corn, just what does that mean ? We grew corn and I don’t recall that….guess my dad just did it and we didn’t know about it LOL….

    Also, what does she do with the rhubarb juice she makes ? Very interesting….as rhubarb is very sour….so that would take a lot of sugar…..does she cook with it, or do they just drink it as a juice , maybe mixed with other fruit…….

    Love reading Lovina’s msgs. sounds like there is always fun at her house 🙂

      I’ll let a farmer answer the question about the corn – but the rhubarb juice recipe has been given out on this website before. You should be able to search and find it.

      Growing up, I had a similar relationship with our gander that Kevin has with Lovina’s rooster. I love geese now, but as a child they always got the better of me!

    Does Timothy live on his own? I always thought the men (women too) stayed with family until they married? Why can’t he do his own laundry, housework, etc.?

      Timothy does live on his own and that – at least in some Amish settlements – is quite common before marriage for the man to buy a house, begin to establish roots, etc. As far as doing his own household chores, Lovina wrote in the column that he’s just been extra busy lately at work so he was behind so he called in reinforcements to help him catch up!:)
