The weather is always changing in the desert state of Utah. Summers of hot days, cool nights to Winter with its mild days and cold nights, and of corse everything in between. Having a large family, I decided to raise my peeps and join the hen party to feel more capable, become more self reliant and express my nurturing tendencies. So glad I did- I love being the mother hen and always have! I'd like to see this thread share group buys and resources in Utah. Also ideas that work with our climate and demographic. I would love to hear your ideas on how to gear up to winter-over. I want to be more prepared this year. But since it's still the heart of summer I'll share the girls coolest treat... I've been making them a big Popsicle frozen in a paper bowl ( so easy to pop out of a paper bowl) I use whatever produce or sprouted grain/ seeds, I have on hand- In the pictures below I started with mealworms and blueberries, added about 1/8 inch of water and put it in the freezer for 15-20 min. Then I added frozen watermelon and chia seed, another 1/8 inch of water and returned to the freezer the last layer was cranberries a little bit of Kombutcha ( for probiotics) and back in the freezer. Hmmm writing this out makes it seem like lots if work but it only took minuets. Veggie pops with leftover green drink is a favorite too! The girls love it! Let me know what you do to keep your girls entertained.
