eat local

food, inc is truly a must see. parts of it are hard to watch, but necessary. so after seeing it last night, i'm even more inspired to grow my own vegetables, herbs and fruit and buy locally.

here is what a baby bell pepper looks like...adorable! we have about 5 growing in our garden right now.

here is our farmers market was packed today

and here's what i picked up - i've never seen green onions this big before!

how cute is this strawberry - they're so fragrant.

sarpy county fair

last night we went to the sarpy county fair...reminded me so much of the columbiana county fair in lisbon. however, no one had vinegar for the fries. seriously, nebraska?

we went on the slight chance that i might see some fainting goats in person. no luck, my search goes on. heath has promised that he will make sure i see one in this lifetime.
