Growing Healthy Eaters and Snap Peas from Seed

My son is obsessed with the outdoors. He’s the ultimate bug catching, fossil digging, mud puddle making boy. It’s pretty hard to get him indoors so we try our best to keep him busy. Since I started up our garden beds again he’s been begging to plant his favorite snap peas in the front yard. How can a mother say no? And growing snap peas from seed is fairly easy.

I handed him a trowel, some gloves, some Miracle-Gro Organic garden soil, and some snap pea seeds. And what he did next was pretty darn awesome. Not only did he plant the seeds, but he proceeded to water them daily, check them for bugs, and give me progress reports on their growth.

This experience definitely made me one happy and proud mama. He’s learning how to grow his own food and he’s requesting more and more variety in the seeds he plants. [Read more...]

Starting a Community Compost

Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of garbage and waste you create, improve and add to the soil that you garden with and it benefits the environment too. Starting a community compost site is an even bigger win because when there is a public option, more folks have a way of joining in and starting to compost for themselves.

To learn more about starting your own community compost site, check out my post on Someday I’ll Learn for great ways to get going today!

Mornings around here can be pretty hectic. Whether we’re racing to get out the door for school, or simply heading out for a family outing, we need quick breakfast and snack options that can sometimes come with us in the car.

My daughter is now obsessed with certain things for breakfast. One of which is yogurt – her favorite is StonyField greek strawberry yogurt. Now she loves to enjoy her yogurt to the fullest and sometimes can end up being quite messy if we let her have a cup of it in the car. So now we skip the cups when we’re on the go and stick with StonyField yogurt pouches.

The yogurt pouches are definitely less messy. Plus I can pack a few up in a day pack with some ice and have an easy and convenient snack for later. There are three types of Stonyfield organic yogurt pouches: YoBaby, for ages 6 months+, YoToddler, for ages 1-2 years+ and YoKids, for ages 3-6 years+. My kids love both the YoToddler and YoKids varieties.

Enjoying the Scent of Spring

The chill from the air is gone, the birds are singing, and the flowers are in full bloom. We’ve said goodbye to winter and have now welcomed spring with open arms.

Spring is my favorite season by far. Not only does the start of spring usually fall on my birthday, but the whole concept of rebirth, babies, and everything that comes to spring has always been something I cherish. And the scent of spring is in the air!

Flowers are in bloom, the garden is thriving, and everyone seems to be in a better mood. Well… everyone who isn’t experiencing snow in April. [Read more...]
