Spring Break

Its funny how it varies depending on where you live. As a teen, I wondered if they did it so the beaches wouldn't be too full. LOL Call me crazy, my kids do, but I am looking forward to theirs this year. It is one day longer in this school and I was excited. We are going to grow a garden, we have the land and time now that we aren't going to all those extra therapies. I find that I might have to find activities to do since we won't be busy with waiting rooms. ANY hints would be great, I live in the South and they will eat any vegetable. You heard that correctly, somehow, (probably due to being worried about food in the past) my group will eat or at least try anything. Any ideas what should or shouldn't go next to what? We want a variety of things even if it is just a bit of it. Lots of fruit, I love hearing about Cindie's kids eating it while they are outside.

Also, can't wait to see how the teacher responds to Ava's actions yesterday.

In France there are two zones (just two, not every county to their own wisdom) and most of their holidays coincide except the February ones, and that's exactly why they do it - to avoid having everyone in the same ski resorts at the same time.

Growing fruit in Georgia is difficult because it's far south enough that there are a ton of bugs and diseases, but it's not warm enough enough to grow citrus and bananas. I've heard figs and berries are the easiest and most reliable. I've been trying to grow pawpaws myself (native plant) but that's a long-term project.

As for veggies:

"Some that grow
particularly well in Georgia include tomatoes, bush beans,
southern peas, squash, zucchini and, surprisingly, eggplant."

Okra is also a good bet.
