Let’s All Do Our Part

It’s been 103 days since California became the first state to go on lock-down to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (not that I’m counting or anything), and just a few short weeks now since things have started to re-open. Life has changed, that we can all agree on. And the only thing that I […]

Why We Buy Organic

It all began with GMO.ย  I can’t remember if I had heard something from someone, or read something somewhere. But either way, one day out of the blue I just knew that I didnโ€™t want to buy any more genetically modified foods, or foods that contained a long list of “ingredients.” Nope, no more science […]

this week’s highlights

Saturday / Our Saturdays are typically on the busy side, and a bit more work than play. So lately we’ve been making a point to keep our mornings more relaxed. For some people that means sleeping in, or hanging out at home in their pj’s while drinking coffee. But for us it means getting to […]

Organic City Gardening

I come from a family of gardeners and yard workers. My parents basically either know how to do everything yard related, or they figure it out. Their yard is their happy place. My Mom has always kept the most beautiful gardens, and my Dad has always kept the tidiest yard. My Mom mows the lawn, […]
