This past weekend Ron, myself, and our Puggle puppy Bijou took a trip to visit my in-laws in Pennsylvania for Father’s Day. It was a weekend filled with great weather and plenty of food. On the way down from New York, we took the longer route instead of jumping on the New Jersey Turnpike which is more like a parking lot on a Friday evening. As we were heading south, we drove through a cute town named Lahaska, Pennsylvania. I asked Ron if we could stop off along our way home to check out some of the eateries and shops and take a leisure Sunday, which he gladly agreed to.
For the weekend we headed upstate to Medusa, New York, where my sister and brother-in-law own five acres in the Catskills. They live in New York City and commute on the weekends to their country property. While continuing their building plans for a Green Home, a very cool 1955 vintage Spartan is where they sleep at this time. They have solar panels for electricity and a well for fresh water. They’ve put in a garden which grows the most amazing organic vegetables, fruits and herbs all summer and well into the fall.
We were invited up to do some grilling and help out with the garden overhaul, getting it ready for spring planting.
