Mommy Minded Tip

Last week I posted about finding a local Farmer's Market.

Last year we wanted the kids to get a better look at where our veggies come from.
A local farmer allowed all of us to go out in the fields and he showed the kids how to pick peas and corn.

When we were done, we all walked back to the barn and the farmer and his wife showed them how to clean the veggies and sent them home with bags of different things to "practice" on at home! It was more than we could have ever asked for and the kids had such a great time.

If this is something that you are interested in for your kids, call around and ask!
I am sure that the older farms especially would love to have young families out to teach!
