We've had more than our fair share of artificial food dyes and sugar around here but are doing our best to get back to being more earthy: Wheatgrass instead of the plastic easter grass (look closely and you might spot little Playmobil deer, chicks, guinea pigs, lambs, and more in there). Alfalfa sprouts started in the jars on the counter behind. Oh, and we made sprouted wheat bread last week with the extras that didn't fit in the pots which turned out fantastic. Eggs dyed with onion skins. 25 pounds of juicing carrots. The juicer I thrifted for $10. A big pile of overwintered horse manure to spread in the garden.
I was just remembering back my last year of college during finals week: hearing on the radio that "The Juiceman" was coming through town and so, leaving the library behind, taking my books and notes down to some hotel conference room where he was giving his sales spiel, studying, and intermittently getting up to sample the juices he was making and handing out. I just went for the free juice and the change of scenery. No chance I could afford one of those juicers back then but now at only $10 from the thrift store, why not?
