Farmers Market & Dogs...pics inside!
So part of our schooling today on Day 2 was a trip to our local Farmers Market. Such great finds today!
First let me say we are doing a Unit on Dogs with our lapbook. We stopped at the library and the kids signed out 10 books having to do with Dogs (they also got a movie Underdog!)
Then we headed over to the market. We stopped at the baked goods table where the kids were awarded a free sample..YUMMO so they say!
Oh and also on the way into the market we came across a man who was walking his dog. Happened to my favorite breed...the Great Dane. Her name is Sadie and she is a beautiful Fawn color. The kids asked questions and petted the dog. It was great!
Then over to the veggie table...oh what a treat we got there. We are having a Labor Day bbq and I bought most of my fresh veggies there1
Then a trip to the Alpaca Table where we learned about how they arrived at this beautiful yarn from the Alpacas. The woman was friendly and very informative. Actually they are even having a Farm day in September that we can go learn more about them.
Then over to the pickle and pickled veggie table.Just had to buy some fresh pickles and mushrooms! We also visitied the fresh milk and cheese table. I bought some goat cheese with rosemary in it...OHHHH Baby! The kids sampled the chocolate milk and we ended up buying some of that...very creamy!
The only table we did not purchase as was the fruit...too expensive in my opinion and the jelly table. Zachary tried a variety of jellies but nothing he loved, so we passed on the jelly and jam.
Overall great morning...now more school!
