Fall Leaves

This week I have been traveling- visiting J.R. Watkins Naturals in beautiful Winona, Minnesota. The leaves are flaunting some beautiful colors and the weather has been uncharacteristically warm. Rumor has it there is at least an inch of snow coming by Halloween, which is hard to imagine. There’s more to come on my trip, but for now there are a few things I wanted to share with you before the weekend kicks in.

Green Pet Care

Lisa over at Condo Blues is hosting this month’s Green Moms Carnival: Green Pet edition. October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month as well as National Pet Wellness Month so it’s the perfect time to talk about green care for our pets. You will find pet adoptions stories, green pet care tips, stories about green pet life, info on food and treats and a little green pet philosophy.  My posts, 8 Tips for Choosing Healthy Dog Food and Natural Flea and Tick Prevention for Pets, are included.

Green Your Apple Picking

It is the perfect time of year for apple picking. I have to admit that we haven’t gone on our annual trek to the local apple orchard yet, but I’m hopeful it will happen. Over at Momtastic this week I shared 8 Ways to Green Your Apple Picking. Check it out!

Project Green Challenge

This amazing mom and daughter team started Teens Turning Green and Project Green Challenge. Read their inspirational story over at Healthy Child Healthy World and enter Project Green Challenge-I did!

What groovy green things are on tap for this weekend?  Whatever you do, ENJOY!

  1. I’m greening my apple picking, too! My partner and I are headed out tomorrow with a couple of friends, and I called around to find an orchard where minimal pesticides were used. In Ontario it’s almost impossible to grow apples without any spray at all, so organic is out of the question, but I’m happy to settle for reduced chemical inputs, because that’s still better than conventional.

  2. Hi Andrea-It’s hard to find organic orchards around here too. I love apple picking so I’m willing to settle for an orchard that uses IPM or another less toxic method. We try to wash them well and let it go for the day. Have a great time-let me know how it goes.

  3. Love this round up, a great way to catch up on anything I may have missed!! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!
