Eat your veggies!

Orrrrrr! Use them to make some ART!




We all know that fresh vegetables are critical to healthy living... But here at Rancho Durenberger, we believe in "healthy crafting!"





{Yikes! It's a herd of wild POTATO pigs!}




Quick! Get them back in the corral!



Phew! Our pet lamb, Cauliflower, is in her pen!



Her pasture is the greenest! No need to covet thy neighbors grass....




But don't go overboard, though... Grains and proteins are important, too. If you don't have
a well rounded diet, you could turn into Produce Sally... She's had a little... too MUCH ruffage! {hee hee}



It's fun to play with your food... AND, it's healthy!

In case you didn't guess what we're up to, the wee-gal and I were finishing up our PRODUCE ART entries for a local fair...! Today was the LAST step and our last day to deliver exhibits to the Sonoma Marin Fair - tomorrow we'll be regular old civilians, enjoying the fruits {& VEGGIES!} of our labor! Can't wait!

So, yeah, I'm a little paper-deprived, but I couldn't help but share these funny {and somewhat disturbing} creations with my craftiest friends! Hope you're finding some GOOD craft in EVERYTHING you do!

Hey, wait a minute! Are these same glorious creations from the woman who, as a girl when she was the same age as her own daughter, wouldn't be caught dead eating vegetables?
