Happy Chickens & Happy Kids

I enjoy living in the countryside. Yet we don’t have serious gardens or greenhouses or animals…. Even chickens! But still, we manage to eat good food! And by good food, I mean local food! And “very” local 20 kilometers around us!

We are buying everyday food like cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, beans, peas, and cabbages etc from local natural (no pesticides, no chemicals) growers.

Also, our jar of milk is from neighbors so called farm one and a half kilometers away from us. She has a natural farm for her family only. Only one cow but it’s enough. In Riga, i would never manage such a real food for my family!

And it’s been more than 3 years I decide not to buy eggs at stores. Only from people who have few chickens. We are buying from neighbor only half kilometer away. And when he runs out of eggs, we visit Janis uncle and have only 10 chicken. But it’s enough! My girls love to visit chickens! And they love us too (we bring snacks!)! And we are happy to bake birthday cakes from fresh eggs.

Tomorrow is the Helmī 2nd birthday party!Wish me luck!

    1. It’s good to “do the best”! That’s how it should be. We do the best and don’t panic or suffer if we can’t. Mindfulness is the answer. The poorer country, the more natural food 🙂 Are you agree with me in that!?

      1. You’re right, except for the countries too poor for the people to eat at all. I was brought up in a poor family, mum being a war widow with three boys to feed, but we always ate well, better than possible here now. Really looking forward to hearing about the party, when you’ve recovered. Quite a day for you I’m sure.
