Fun Reasons to Celebrate June
If you want to celebrate Dairy Month, check out these Breakfast on the Farm Events. Some are a bit of a road trip, but June is a good month for family drives.
Personally, I like my milk really cold from the fridge. When I was growing up and visitng my aunt and uncle’s dairy farm, we had it directly from the cow, and it’s warm. I may be a country kid, but I’m still not a farm kid.
Maybe I will celebrate Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month since June celebrates that as well! I plan to visit a couple Farmer’s Markets this summer as well as working in different gardens. Our church has a giving garden (30×30 foot plot dedicated to growing fresh fruits and vegetables for the local food shelf.
We will work hard in our garden in June at home, too. Some of us don’t have space for a garden, but we can still have a pot of something: tomatoes, lettuce, herbs. Of course this is to celebrate Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month.
Let’s celebrate National Rose Month. If you’re in the Chanhassen neighborhood, you could shoot down to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. On the shores of Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, you can visit the Noerenberg Gardens.
On the east side of town, you can visit Muriel Sahlin Arboretum in Central Park in Roseville or Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in St. Paul. It’s time for their summer flower show. My guess is that you will see roses, but please let me know if I’m wrong.
Don’t forget Roseville celebrates Rosefest in June.
How could we let June go by without celebrating National Candy Month? Yes, you heard me right. National. Candy. Month. And I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than by hitting some of our favorite, local candy stores. Our Junior Reporter, Andy, has done an excellent job of rounding up Candy Stores in the Twin Cities.
