Clinton Falls FSA Farm Tour

Today we went to a local CSA for a tour with our playgroup. I would love to say I learned something, well, I did, just not about gardening. The Clinton Falls Farm is an organic CSA and has veggies, berries, flowers, rhubarb & herbs. The partner with a nearby farm to provide eggs (you can buy shares of eggs and/or CSA shares). What I did learn is that they are partnering with another farmer who will raise chickens & turkeys on their property that will then be available for purchase in late summer & fall. We also got to taste Chevril, which is like a parley but has a black licorice flavor to it (I didn't care for it). It is an annual herb. They also let us sample mint if we wanted, but since we have some & Isabel doesn't like mint we didn't try theirs. What Isabel liked the most was seeing the flowers they have in bloom currently. She loves flowers.
After the tour we made a visit to the library and then had a playdate with our friends Caitlin, Amelia & Gavin at McD's so the kids could burn off energy in the playland. This dreary rainy weather sucks.
And this afternoon Isabel had her last Tae Kwon Do class. This was the end of the session and we won't be signing up again. She gets scared by all the boys yelling loudly "POW!" when they kick the bags, which is what they are supposed to do. But Isabel can't handle really loud noises (it does get really loud) and it is kind of scary sounding, but it's supposed to be.
