Organically Oregon

imageHi There! I decided to do a post since I’ve been having problems with my phone. I flew into Portland two days ago and couldn’t get over the fact that it was so green. Once we left the airport the city looked like the opening credits of Portlandia. I had to play the Portlandia theme song as we headed down town.

Our Little Herb Garden

It’s Monday already. Wow, that weekend sure went fast. On Friday, Little Pumpkin Doodle and I headed over to Home Depot. I’m not a gardener, in fact I find it stressful.

Little Pumpkin Doodle loves to go the local farmers market on Wednesday to buy her organic carrots.  I’m convinced there is one farmer who purposely grows kid friendly sized carrots so that kids try them.  My hubby and I have tried to ensure that our daughter gets a healthy organic start in life, so we’ve introduced her to edamame, sea weed, hummus and greek yogurt at an early age.
