Great Way To Spend Time With Kids Outside – Planting A Flower Garden

Rylie Holding Red Flowers

My daughter and I love to spend time outside together in our yard. She has a swingset, a sandbox and a battery operated 4 wheeler along with a ton of other outdoor toys to play with in our yard. Although these are great ways for my daughter to expend energy I wanted to find different ways for her to enjoy nature. Not just running, climbing, riding and jumping. So this year we made and planted our own flower garden. Getting her to help design, till, plant, weed, water, and enjoy the beautiful flowers as a result of all our hard work has been very fulfilling for us both. We even went a step farther and decided to purchase some bird houses and feeders. We really loved looking through all the options at YardEnvy.com before making our selection. We even found some garden decor items that we must have for our flower garden. Kids need to encounter new and interesting things to keep the spark of natural curiosity burning, because that curiosity is an essential part creative thinking. … [Continue]

I have found that when purchasing beef it's important to make sure this is on the label 100% Grass-Fed and Certified Organic. It is the only meat that we will eat and we buy it online here.   Not sure what Organic is?  Well I hope this helps. Back in 2002, USDA regulations went into effect governing the labeling of foods produced using organic agriculture. Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. In other words, farmers can not give organic livestock antibiotics or growth hormones making the meat safer for you to consume. They also must feed their animals 100% organic feed, such as grass. Organic farmers must also give their livestock … [Continue]
