An abundance of organic farms.
After my excitement at seeing an organic farm selling plants at the farmer’s market, I came home and did a search for local organic farms. I was amazed at the number of places that turned up. Here I thought I was in no-man’s-land as far as local organic growers went. I can’t remember the last time I was so happy to be wrong. Next week, I hope to go on a little food adventure and see what I can learn.
Housework and homemade burritos
This was a busy day. I played hookie from the gym, and stayed home and did some housework that was well past due. When the trash cans are ALL overflowing, you just have to git-‘er-done! Also, I made about 40 frozen burritos with the assembly help of Arctic Boy and Mr. Hot Stuff. Every time I go grocery shopping I eye the frozen burritos – it’s just hard to beat the convenience of them – but I read the ingredient label and all the additives sound so distasteful I can’t bring myself to buy them. Today I decided to stop procrastinating and just do it. Yummy! Yay!
After all the burrito fun, we had Family Night. This week’s family activity was weeding the garden. Isn’t life exciting? Well, if the weed you pull up lets loose a whole army of ants trying to bite you, it’s a little more excitement than you’d probably care to have while doing such a mundane task.
I saw a whole bunch of baby garden orb weaver spiders crawling around in there too. Those things get huge and have an appetite to match their size. Definitely friends to have in the garden, just don’t let them freak you out in the fall. I’m not kidding, those humdingers get BIG.
Our rhubarb is finally growing well this year. Could it be that all it needed was consistent watering? Hmm…
winner-winner, veggie dinner 🙂
P.S. Tomorrow I’ll try to write up my burrito recipe.
