Making Progress

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Well, I gave in to temptation a couple of days this past week. However, I am determined to get back on track, full speed ahead, this week. The one plus yesterday is that I shoveled the snow and ice off the sidewalks.

I simply cannot wait for the farmers markets to open! I love fresh organic produce. I have tried to educate my family on the difference between organic and other produce. I even use soap to wash my apples and pears. I know that I shouldn't do this with lettuce and such but I just can't help myself. Does anyone else have this issue? Oh well, I am just crazy I guess. The pesticide issue just really bothers me I guess.

Next week I will start my herb garden. I always start them inside. I'm not sure that I will be planting them outside this year. I'll think about it.

Hope you all have a wonderful week. Have a healthy week anyway!! Love to all!!

    Thanks for your responses. I know that vinegar is a natural cleanser and will probably work. I will give it a try. I love that idea since I always have vinegar on hand because I use it to clean other household items!!

    I've read a few things recently about soaking fruits and veggies in a mixture of vinegar and water to clean them. Sounds like it might be worth a try... http://www.npr.org/templates/story/

    emoticon I feel same way about pesticides and use soap for apples, pears but not lettuce. I think there is a wash for vegetables and fruit but I don't know if it works well. Can't remember name...
