Ask Edmond People - July 2020

My favorite sound is of the volleyball being served over sand, children screaming as they fall off the tube and fireworks bursting overhead.

I spent my childhood summers mowing lawns, hauling hay, working in our family’s huge garden, and with the cows and pigs. I love the smell of fresh cut grass, the sound of cows mooing and the taste of fresh vegetables.

So many scents come to mind, but none stand out more than the smell of a “it may just rain” warm humid breeze carrying with it the scents of the field as I haul freshly cut hay.

Growing up in Oklahoma, summertime meant tomatoes. Atleast once a week, my grandmother would make a pot of beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. My favorite thing was a cornbread sandwich,with a fresh garden tomato, buttered of course.

My summer flavor is peach, homemade peach ice cream. My Mother made incredible ice cream. The anticipation, sitting on the ice cream freezer while my Dad cranked away. Wehadsomeofthebest conversations there. Sweet, delicious memories!

Homemade ice cream! We had family cookouts often and homemade ice cream was a special treat in the summer, especially on the 4th of July and birthdays. My parents had an electric ice cream maker, but my grandparents used a manual one and we kids all thought it was fun to help make it “like they did in the old days.”
