Happy April! I am so glad to report that we have had our first over sixty degree day for the season (so what if today is in the low forties again) everything is looking optimistic. And now that April has finally arrived, we have Easter on the brain here at the farm.
This year will be our Fourth Annual Easter Egg Hunt! We have so much fun at this free event on our farm... We have baby chicks and free prizes for the kiddo's to win, and the week prior we always offer free Easter Egg dying using 100% all natural dyes. Yes, that means only using dyes made from fruit, vegetables, and a variety of spices- No mystery dye Yellow No. 7. You can of course make your own dye from scratch or if you're a busy parent and don't have time for that, there are several great options online these days (Check out here & here!)
Another great project I LOVE for kids and adults alike, is growing inside egg shells! This project is very easy to do and you can even decorate the egg shells if you'd like, but we love the natural color tones of our farm fresh eggs. Now you can either start some Spring transplants in these little guys and plant the egg directly in the ground later. But I love to grow MicroGreens in them! MicroGreens only take 7-14 days on average to grow and when grown inside a colorful egg, they will look beautiful on your windowsill or maybe on display at your Easter celebration.
