Come March, most of us are getting bored with what is available in the produce isle that is fresh and affordable: potatoes, carrots and onions,. We are wishing that the summer fruit season would hurry up! But while we are waiting, there is a veggie out there that is abundant, reasonably priced and super healthy that you might not have give a try before- kale! Just look at this. One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. Wow! That’s a lot of good for you food! There are a lot of ways to prepare kale that even your veggie hater will find irresistible:  Make a simple salad with a bunch of thinly sliced kale, red pepper, onion, raisins, and your favorite salad dressing.  Braise chopped kale, apples and water chestnuts until the kale is tender. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar.  Make kale chips by slicing kale into bite-size pieces, toss with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt, and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven. Totally fun, totally yum! And just sweet enough to tide you over until the summer fruit comes in. - Debbie Justice


The weather is finally starting to feel like spring and now is a great time to get out with your tot and enjoy outdoor play before the harsh summer limits how much time you can be outside! Most of the time we think of outdoor activities in terms of motor skills: running, climbing, picking up bugs and flowers. But there is a whole new dimension that you can focus on to enrich your experience in the open air . . . Sound! Just think of all the sounds you can focus on. Is that an airplane? Do you hear that bird? Listen! Those children sound like they are playing tag. Can you hear that bug? Helping your little one focus on what they hear helps develop language skills, problem solving, creativity and imagination. Wanna take it up a notch? Try having your older toddler close their eyes and tell you what they hear. Just beware! That might be the ice cream truck off in the distance! And if you babe guesses it correctly, you just might have to pay up. - Debbie Justice

Water-wise Gardening Workshops March 2 (10-11am) Raised Beds & Gardening March 7 (10-11am) It’s All About Irrigation! All workshops are FREE and held at Tonaquint Nature Center 1851 S Dixie Drive St. George

N

ow that it is starting to warm up a bit, how about a nature walk with your toddler? Just wrap some masking or duct tape around your child’s wrist with the sticky side out. Then help him/her select little flowers, leaves, small pebbles, etc., to stick to the outside of the tape. Be sure and say lots of names of things to help your child learn new words. When you get home from your walk, just snip the tape off and stick it inside a baggie. Your proud babe can show grandpa and grandma all of the pretty spring items that he/she has collected.
