Dear Amish Man,

I am pretty sure you will never read this considering I parked my car next to your horse and buggy this morning. I'm guessing that means you don't have a computer at home. Or electricity. I just want to thank you for officially starting my summer. The corn I bought from you this morning, although a little more pricey than the grocery store was out of this world delicious! I am kicking myself for only buying eight ears, and not a full dozen. You told me that it was fresh picked this morning and I really believe it was because it was fantastic! Best. Corn. Ever. Little did I know that The Son would devour two ears. He is not one to eat any sort of vegetable, even if it is a starchy one. He even asked for more but I had already eaten four and The Husband had two so there were none left for my poor child. I guess that won't win me any "mother of the year" awards, huh? 

I will be back next week after The Son's karate class and I will definitely be buying at least a dozen. I hope you'll be there with your yummy fresh ears of corn just piled up on the ground waiting for me. I liked how you joked that you'd sell me the whole pile if I wanted it when I asked if I could just buy eight ears, your friendliness and Amish sense of humor (have you thought of trying a career in stand-up comedy?)  added to the enjoyment of my corn.  The Husband has not yet tried the tomatoes but I'll let you know how he likes them next week. Tell your wife that I will also pick up a package of her lovely home made peanut butter cookies, I meant to buy some today and they looked delicious but somehow I got distracted. If they're half as good as the corn, the whole CityFamilyCountryFamily will be very happy. 

It was a pleasure doing business with you, hope to see you again next week. 

Sincerely,
CityMommaCountryMomma... emphasis on the "country" in this case.

YUMMY! I love fresh veggies and corn on the cob is top of the list for me and the kids. Actually the kitchen table my grandfather made me for my wedding was in part built by a man in the amish community in TN.
