It's harvest time!!! The bounty at our local farms is bringing us so much joy! We are so lucky to have a little "Potager" (as they call them here in Quebec, Canada) that is about a ten minute drive from our home and that we have been visiting weekly. The harvest came in slowly but surely starting with strawberries and asparagus, next cucumbers and deep purple onions, on to plump tomatoes and ruby red potatoes, and now we are beginning to see the squash and, of course, the corn abounds!
If you are an Artsy Starter you have probably already been busy exploring veggies in art with us this fall semester! In particular my Little Artist loves the work of Arcimboldo during this season. Grab a seat with your little one and take a peek at this Smithsonian video of Arcimboldo's work:
Got a taste for vegetables? Well, here's a little bonus vegetable activity that is both easy and delicious. Veggie stamping!
