Mommy Minded Tip

With spring just around the corner we are already thinking about our farmer's market!

The kids and I love to go every weekend and visit with our local farmers and let the kids pick the veggies for the week.

This is a great way to get fresh organic food for your family.
We really got into going organic when I asked one of the farmers
 if his squash was organic and he said
"You bet! If the bugs don't want to eat it, neither do we!"
lol, didn't think of it that way!

Another thing that I love about going is that there is always a group of older ladies swapping recipes and love to teach the "young'ns" some old tricks! ...And I love to learn them! ;)

We also find local honey and herbs at out market!

Call around and find out where your local farmer's market
 is so that you will be ready for this spring! :)
