Solid Amish roots make for great garden, strong Hoosier ties




My vegetable garden is thriving, thank you, although I can’t take any of the credit. It has done this all on its own without much in the way of input from me, save planting and a little watering.

I have tomatoes and cucumbers in profusion, and the only thing I can think of that makes them so healthy is that they started out Amish. By that I mean I got them at a greenhouse owned by an Amish family, over in Wayne County, where they got an excellent start.

For some people, that will be answer enough. The Amish have a reputation for producing quality goods, and that goes for garden starts. You can’t go wrong with Amish eggplant.
