This week we took a field trip to an educational farm. It was a lovely experience full of flowers and vegetables, SweetPea even got to feed the chickens greens which she thought was a lot of fun. We harvested beans and made a musical instrument out of them, plus we learned that you can use plants from the garden to draw on paper just like crayons.
After tasting some Delicious fresh vegetables on crackers with hummus we thanked the wonderful, and very informative staff and headed back down the road and out to our car.
SweetPea (19m) found a caterpillar crawling through the middle of the road so we very gently picked it up and moved it to the safety of the grass away from the edge. She was so sweet and careful not to crush the little creature it was a wondrous sight to behold.
If you live in Humboldt County I highly recommend checking out the Redwoods Roots Farm in Arcata. They have a Farm Stand every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday(June- November) full of Fresh Yummy Produce!
If you don’t live live in Humboldt I highly recommend you find a local farm or farmers market and get yourself some fresh local produce!!! You will not be sorry!
