Celebrating the Green-ness

Happy St. Patty's Day to you! I don't do good accents in person, so I won't attempt one on here either. :) I do hope you are enjoying your day, and please remember to wear something green, or you might get pinched!

Now, as we are a kid friendly household, we can't celebrate like we use to (cough*more beer*cough) so we will be doing some other things 'green' today.

We will be planting our first garden bed today, using mostly organic seeds and homemade compost. All of our seeds this year came from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange in Virginia. We ordered everything from them because of their selection, the quality they offer, and their proximity to us (as opposed to other companies carrying matching quality products). If you are a little further west, I would recommend Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds of Missouri. We have ordered from them in the past and they are always a pleasure to deal with. Their selection is hard to beat, and their seeds packets almost always come adorned with very pretty art.

Also on the green-ish list for today is our dinner, which will include some sort of beef and potatoes (no, I don't know how to make corned beef. *sigh* maybe next year) Nothing fancy about the food, it came from the closest grocery store to our house, which is another way to keep it "green" (both environmentally and economically).

Okay, I guess that's about it. Our kids aren't old enough to get anything more than clovers and leprechauns anyway. How are you spending your day?

Until next time, DRIVE SAFE!
