I am so thankful for having time, the resources and health to share my gardening life with others. This past weekend I once again made a trip to the south valley to visit http://www.skarsgardfarms.com/. They once again had a tour of the farm, which we missed and took time to photograph the piglets and barn instead. They had a gentleman who spoke to a group of us about composting. He not only spoke to us but brought along some of the what and what nots to put into a pile. He handed out some fliers on how to get more info and how to invite him to share his wealth of information with others. In addition to learning about composting there was a young man that spoke about irrigation. It was a little more basic and not as informative. While listening we chowed down on a breakfast burrito and some gazpacho made by the farms new Food Truck. The burrito was delicious! Egg, swiss chard, goat cheese and other yummies from the farm were rolled up into a tortilla that hit just the right spot. After this we walked on over to one of the huge trees where they had set up tables with plants ready to go home to a new home. During the visit there was also music and I believe the farm has a mascot, as I once again saw this cute little black and white dog going from person to person begging for pat on the head.

  I looked around me and saw single people as well as families enjoying the outdoors and truly loving and learning from their local csa. The crowd was larger than the first visit I went to. So in the end I was thankful for a day with my daughter and everything around me.
