Does anyone buy their plants at an Amish greenhouse? We buy flowers there but never our vegetable plants. I'm thinking of doing that this next season. Their gardens always look fabulous!

We've bought plants from Amish greenhouses and Amish auctions. We've never had any problem with them.

Absolutely! The Amish gardens always look amazing! We have bought many perrineals from them. They grow beautifully the first year and multiply in years after. My wife and her best friend make a day of it every year. They come back with a truckload of flowers!

Yep, we buy from the Amish farms around here too. Actually I'm not sure if they are Amish or Mennonite. The vegetable plants always do great in our garden. We just started buying flowers, so far so good.

If the women are wearing those hats that look like lacey pill box hats, they're Mennonite. If they get in their car and drive away when they get off work, they're Mennonite.

I don't live near either sect anymore, but if you can't trust the Amish, who can you trust?

I have quite a few Amish friends. One of them once told me, with great amusement, "Most of you English seem to think that we are always honest. I appreciate that is the image that many of you have, but we're just like anyone else, we have good people and bad people." He then pointed out another Amish man that we both knew is a conman. I had no idea, I always believed the guy, since he was Amish, I thought he just had to be honest. Happily, all of my Amish friends happen to be very honest and good people. I can certify one Amish stereotype though, their cooking is out of this world! We NEVER turn down an invite to dinner at an Amish household.
