When potato plants have turned yellow and faded away, it is time to dig potatoes here on Blue Mountain. Today was that time, so we finished digging up our last potatoes of the year. All the children helped dig through the loose soil to pull out red, white, and purple potatoes. Yes, we found an onion or two as well. As a reward, the children were then able to play in the dirt and to plant green bean seeds in the place of the potatoes.
Our favorite trail to hike at the Shenandoah River State Park is Overlook Trail. This trail is great for toddlers and young children, and a stroller is manageable, though there are a few steep inclines and some rocky paths. As a reward, we always go down to the river to put our feet in, but this day was particularly warm…the children ended up in the water head over heals!
With these hot summer days, it is important that we remain hydrated and that we restore our nutrient and mineral stores. Kambucha is a wonderful and natural way to help your body in the summer. You can find out more about Kambucha here! This is our 5 gallon jar that we keep going throughout the year.
