Probably everyone who is reading this blog already knows that the Mennonite tomato post I put up a while back made it to the world of real ink and paper! The Bucks County Herald (the county my mother grew up in in Pennsylvania), printed it in this weeks paper. Click the following link to go to their electronic edition. It’s on page 37 (D3).
The article mentions my grandfather’s childhood farm in Buck’s County, and I’m lucky enough to have a few pictures:
Anyway, I think my grandfather would be proud that one of his grandchildren is back on a farm today. As for what my mother would think of me having an article published in the Bucks County Herald, I think my Aunt Barbara said it best: “Your mother would have likely found a typo or something to note, but she would have bubbled over with delight — though, like a Mennonite, without showing off.”
