Organic Gardens and A Fountain Shop

We went to our local organic farm today. They had tables and tables full of organic herbs, vegetables and flowers. It was very hard to stick with our garden budget for the day. I can't help myself when it comes to herbs....I always want 2 or 3 of each kind!

The Ohio weather provided us with 80 degree temps today, so it was really warm in the greenhouse. The little ladies found the cool breezy spots!

My sister Katrina found a curly plant that matched her natural curls.

We went to quench our thirst at an old fashioned fountain shop. We settled for curly fries and cherry sodas.

We also met Robin's new friend Eric. This is their first picture together...aahhhhh! Poor Eric spent the day with 6 women! When you get my sisters, my mom, my girls and myself together there are 6 females.....he seemed to survive OK.

New herbs, new vegetables, a new friend and spending time with my family makes a perfect day! I have some dandelion and violet posts in the works, but those are for another day.

oh, how sweet! I love girls with blowed up skirts. ;)That curly plant is perfect for your sis's curly hair.

Wow, I'm so jealous that you have a place like that near you. It looks like you had a wonderful day. I love the shot of the girls catching the breeze. We needed that today; it was in the 90s. Spring, come back!

Lovely, what a grand day! :D
I love going to the garden centers, but boy, temptation is great! Your girls really are adorable, have a wonderful weekend!

That looks like a fantastic place! I love the second picture.
I'm looking forward to your dandelion and violet posts :)
(Thanks for leaving a comment on our blog - the hammocks belong to our neighbours!)

I love the way greenhouses feel.. looks like a fun day. :)

wouldnt it be lovely to just buy the whole greenhouse and own it all.....sorry, that was me day dreaming out loud. I love nurseries and always wanted a massive greenhouse. I am also a herb lover and plonk them everywhere in my garden.

Isn't this warm weather wonderful!!! And I know what you mean when you say that you always want to buy 2 or 3 herbs of each kind ... lol. Looks like you all had a lovely day.

Hello! Just came across your blog and had to book-mark some of your projects to do with my girl. :D

Fun, fun!!

I doubt I'd stick to the budget, either! But I can always justify it by buying perennials! ;)

Looks like a lovely day of super sweetness and fun.

It was Herb Day at our local farmer's market, too. I get overwhelmed, though, and just end up not buying anything at all. But I did buy some chocolate mint. I have no idea what I'll do with it, but it smells really good.

What a great the *breezy* shot, great!
I struggle with plant temptation too!
