I love ladybugs not only because of their beautiful polka-dots, or that they come in red or orange – not to mention they are so darn cute.  I really, really like them because they eat other bad bugs that are in the garden, like aphids.

Fresh Eggs

There is nothing like fresh eggs. I mean, look at them;  They look like Easter Eggs! So beautiful!

The Benefits of getting Eggs locally

#1  – you know where they’re coming from.

#2 – You’re helping out local Farmers.

#3– They scramble up really well! 🙂

#4– The Farmer gives them to us for free – ’cause we’re Friends, and such.

#5– I do give him canned goods; like beets, and pickles – ’cause, I get to feeling guilty.

#6-We get almost 3 dozen a week and I do share with my neighbors, too.  They love to see me coming with fresh eggs in hand.
