Local Food and Cloth Diapers

In January, I posted about the One Small Change project.  This is my February report.

In January, I pledged to start feeding my family more local food.  Turns out that January is not the most ideal time of year to  make such a change.  No farmers markets open, not much being grown locally, and my family was out of town nearly half the month.  I did sign up for the Basket a Month (BAM) program through the Central Arkansas Farmers Market, but due to weather and lack of production, the January basket was cancelled.  So, in the end, while I do have some local food scheduled to come my way via the BAM, my family and I have not increased our local food intake.  hum.  My short-term solution is that I’m planning to put together an order from either the CAFM online market or Petit Jean Farm.  I’m not sure which because I have a head cold that is making it hard for me to think about food.  I also have a plan to meet with fellow Arkansas blogger, The Park Wife, who runs a Farmers Market.  I’m hoping she can help me out with resources and tips.

For FEBRUARY, my One Small Change is that I plan on getting back into using my cloth diapers more on Callen.  Somehow, with all the travel, the cold temps that discourage me from getting them out on the clothes line, and just the general fast-fastness of life, I have not been using my cloth diapers as I should.  So, for February, less disposable and more cloth!  Hopefully this is one change that will become defunct by the end of this year because we won’t need ANY diapers.  A mommy can dream, anyway.

Nicole!  Are you out there cleaning something with homemade cleaner?  Post and let us know how your January One Small Change turned out.

  1. This is a tough time of year to jump on the local food bandwagon, for sure. I’ve been pretty faithfully using the Online Market, though, and to fairly great success. The milk, butter and eggs are fantastic, and we’ve also had good luck with the salad mixes. It is SUPER nice to be able to plan ahead online and then pick everything up at a scheduled time. Plus, Petit Jean Farm is one of the farms available through the market. Don’t worry, we’ll be eating zucchini and tomatoes before we know it!

    Thanks for the recommendations, Brooke. I didn’t see Petit Jean Farm on their list of participating farms, but glad to know they participate. Can’t wait for spring!
