  • Reflection Question
    Food Buy From a Farmers Market
    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

  • Reflection Question
    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    We are keeping a really close eye on budget and spending.  We are taking lunches to work and school.  Making one big meal on Sunday, that does not involve meat!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    Thankful for the recent rain!  We turned off the sprinklers for at least a week to reduce water consumption.  Also , collected rain water for all potted plants. 🌧 🌱 💙
