Growing Your Own Fruits and Veggies

I am really interested in starting a real veggie and fruit garden this year.  I think it would be a great way to cut down on our trips to the produce store (which is a 10 minute car ride once a week) and save us some cash (we typically spend about $20 - $25 on fresh fruit and veggies a week).  I think fresh veggies are much more nutritious than those sitting on store shelves.

I also think it would be a GREAT learning project for my kids and my daycare kids.  My problem is that I have a crazy schedule and not often a ton of time to work on a veggie garden.  So if I incorporate it into my daycare curriculum, the kids will remind me that we need to take care of our plants!  We also have lots of critters that like to steal my veggies.  I do not have any sort of green thumb.

Considering that many seed catalogs offer $25 off your first order when you receive their catalog in the mail, this makes for very cheap or free fruits and veggies for your family!  I really love Burpee and Gurney's because they offer great descriptions in the catalog on exactly how and where to plant your seeds for the best results.  While I am browsing, I need to find some flowers and plants that attract bees.  Very important!

I plan on making raised beds in the backyard so that the kids and the dog don't trample any seedlings.  I hope to find some cedar wood or pine that is not pressure treated so I can build it (well, so my Dad can build it).

Do you garden?  Are you into fruits, veggies, or flowers?

The Sew Natural Diaper Giveaway Has Been Extended!

We are extending the Sew Natural AIO diaper giveaway until NEXT Wednesday March 31, 2010 at noon EST.  Get you entries in!!!!!

Spring Greening!

I LOVE spring cleaning.  Opening the windows and letting fresh air in soothes my soul.  Plus, it seems to be the one time a year that everyone participates in chores.  I can ask the hubby to do just about anything in the name of spring cleaning and it gets done.  Its almost as if spring is the nag instead of me.

Since I use a lot of cleaning products this time of year, I tend to make my own to save money and make sure that  my dog and my family are healthy and safe.  Today, I want to share my simple "recipes" for eco and budget friendly cleaners.
  • Abrasive Cleanser (use in place of toilet bowl cleaners and tile cleaners)  - Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 3 tablespoons of Kosher salt in a small mixing bowl.  Sprinkle the mixture onto counter tops, tile, or into the toilet bowl. If you need more cleaning power, add enough water to make a paste.  Put the paste onto the surface to be cleaned let it sit for a few minutes.  Then scrub with a damp rag.  
  • Mildew/Grease Remover (use in place of kitchen and bathroom spray cleaners) - Buy an empty spray bottle (I bought mine at a dollar store).  You can fill this bottle with equal parts of vinegar and water or equal parts lemon juice and water.  I use lemon juice and water for my stove top and bathroom and kitchen counters, and the vinegar on windows, mirrors, and glass.
  • Disinfectant (use instead of bleach) - 4 cups of water, 5 tablespoons of dish soap, and 50 drops of tea tree oil.  This works great on door handles and toys!
  • Oven Cleaner - Make a paste off baking soda and water and apply to the inside of your oven.  Let it sit at least 8 hours (I let mine sit overnight) and in the morning, scrub off buildup.  Finish off with a clean wet rag for a spotless interior!
  • Floor Cleaner - I use an eco-friendly commercial dish soap and warm water on my tile floors.  For my hardwood floors, I use a rag dampened with vinegar and water.  I only do this about twice a year.  The rest of the time I sweep, vacuum, or spot clean with plain water.  
What do you use during your spring cleaning?

    Green Gal Pick: Sew Natural Watch Me Grow One Size Pocket Diaper Review and Giveaway!

    Chrissie over at Sew Natural Diaper Company was kind enough to send me one of her fabulous Watch Me Grow One Size Pocket diapers to review.  As you all know, the majority of my stash is pocket diapers and I really do love them.  I was so thrilled to try out the white Watch Me Grow that I washed it that night and had it on my daughter first thing in the morning.  Notice the morning bed head (no, her hair is not in pigtails - it is stuck that way from the hairdo the day before):


    As you can see, the Watch Me Grow diaper fits my daughter very well.  I really love that it is a trim fitting diaper and I was even able to put jeans on her that day.  It is not only trim enough to fit under jeans, but it also is trim in the crotch area.  I like that in a diaper because it means it is more comfortable for my baby.  Some diapers are ridiculously wide and I think that can be really annoying in a baby who is learning to walk, crawl, or run.  

     On the smallest setting with lovely crossover buttons:
    (Chrissie is changing the name over from DewDrops Handmade)
    One the largest setting:



    The trimness doesn't affect performance a all.  This diaper held up to a 5 hour span when daughter fell asleep on her bedroom floor one afternoon.  I usually worry when I don't change her right before a nap, but I didn't have to stress at all with the Watch Me Grow.  She woke up with a very heavy diaper, but she was dry, her clothes were dry, and her carpet was dry.  Yay!!!

    I love the this fits from 8 pounds all the way up to 28 pounds.  That is great on the wallet (especially since these diapers are priced at just $16 a piece -- great price for a reliable pocket) and the earth!  The inner absorbent layer is Sew Natural's ROBIN tri-fold insert.  This insert has six absorbent layers of bamboo french terry and 3 layers of cotton velour.  I have some of the velour inserts and they are S-O-F-T soft.


    Chrissie was kind enough to answer my obnoxious questions and it really makes me love small mom businesses even more.

    What got you interested in cloth diapers/cloth diaper making?
    I always knew that I would cloth diaper my children. Initially I began with just prefolds and covers - I was already overwhelmed with making clothes, blankets, and enjoying our first baby to really think about actually making the diapers myself! When I found out we were expecting our 4th I knew I was going to need to restock our diaper stash so I decided I would make my own. I have gone through several trial diapers to end up here and I'm constantly working to make my pattern better.  

    What inspired the new diaper design?
    The new diaper design was inspired by the fact that I want people to understand that cloth diapering is EASY, and I was hoping to make it as painless as possible! I used to avoid AIOs because they take so long to wash and dry, it completely defeated the purpose to me. So I incorporated some new fabrics developed by Wazoodle Fabric company designed specifically to increase the effiency of diapering! I think that the new diaper brings the trimness and ease of a disposable and the practicality and eco-friendliness of cloth diapering together nicely.

    What do you hope for your business in the future?
    I really hope that I can continue to grow my company, so that in 5 years when my youngest enters kindergarten it can be a full time job for me. Eventually I would love to open and fabric/sewing store here. . . but for now I have babies to raise!

    Green Gal Pick: Fridge-It Odor Absorber Review and Giveaway ***CLOSED***

    As everyone knows -- diapers stink.  In my home there are a LOT of diapers.  My daughter uses cloth diapers which I keep in a pail liner inside a regular trashcan until it is washing time.  But, I also have my own home daycare and most of them uses disposable diapers which end up in my trash can each day.  Needless to say, by the end of the day my hallway STINKS.  Since I do not use chemical air fresheners and the weather isn't quite warm enough to open the windows and let some of the stink out, I am stuck with a stinky house until the end of the day when I can take out the trash and wash diapers.  I knew that there had to be a green way to control odors inside the home without spraying toxic chemicals to cover up the smell, but I couldn't find anything for a long time.  Then I saw Innofresh's blog.

    As I read, I realized that their line of eco-friendly, fragrance and chemical free line of activated carbon odor absorbers was exactly what I needed.  Another huge plus, these are made right here in the USA.  Which makes them greener because they do not have to ship from halfway around the world.  I do not use chemical cleaning products in my home for the safety and health of my family, my dog, and my daycare children.  A find like this was something I needed to have ASAP!  Unlike other products that just mask odors, their activated carbon odor absorbers actually eliminate the odors by absorbing and neutralizing - so the odor is permanently eliminated - not just covered up like other "air fresheners."   So I contacted Bruce over at Innofresh and he generously offered to send me some of their awesome odor absorbers to review.

    So once I received the odor absorbers, I out them to the ultimate test -- well my daycare kids did.  I stuck one at the bottom of the garbage can and put in a fresh bag.  Within an hour, there were 5 soiled diapers in that can.  For the first time, I could walk through the room without smelling anything at all!  I also clipped one to the lid of my daughter's diaper pail.  That pail sat for 3 days before I washed the diapers and there was no odor in or around the pail.  Usually I have to take the pail down into the basement each night and store the dirties down there until washing, but not anymore!

    Since I love to put things to the test, I also put one in our fridge, freezer, and my husband's lunchbox.  My fridge stinks like onion because I use a lot of onions and garlic when I cook.  And that old box of baking soda just isn't cutting it anymore.  Nothing is worse than putting butter on your bagel in the morning and your butter tastes like old onion -- ICK!  My freezer had that lovely smell of freezer burn -- at least I think that is what it is. I'm not actually sure what freezer burn smells like.  I wanted to see how long it would take to remove the odors from the fridge, freezer, and lunchbox.  I clipped these absorbers in at 8 in the morning and by lunchtime the odors in all three locations were completely gone.  I was amazed.  

    Now, if only I could get my dog to wear one on his collar...

    BUY IT!

    You can buy Innofresh Odor Absorbers directly through their website or use their site to find a retailer near you.  Use coupon code BK409B to receive an automatic 10% discount on purchases made on line at   This coupon code must be entered into the required coupon field during checkout.

    Green Gal Pick: Flip One Size Diaper System Review

    Another new style of diaper that I tried out recently was the Flip One Size Diaper System from Diaper Junction. Bryana at Diaper Junction generously offered to send me the Flip system in Ribbit to try out.

    When it arrived, I was so anxious to try it out.  First thing I noticed was that it is a one size snap diaper -- HUGE PLUS!  I love one size diapers and I love snaps.  Snaps are my preference because they do not snag on other diapers in the washer and dryer and they hold up much better to frequent use.

    Next thing that I noticed was the Stay Dry Insert.  It has a moisture wicking suede material on one side to go against baby's skin which is great because I like when my daughter feels dry.  It has another 3 layers of microfiber to keep that moisture contained.  The Flip is VERY easy to put together.  Just 2 quick tucks and the liner is in place and you are ready to diaper baby.

    If you prefer natural materials, the Flip offers an organic cotton insert as well.  They also offer a disposable diaper insert for the times when cloth just isn't an option.

    I love the fit of this cloth diaper because it is trim, which is rare in almost any cloth diaper.  My daughter wore this diaper for 3 hours without a single leak!  She put it to the ultimate test by having a massive would-be blowout as well.  I say would-be blowout because the Flip contained the entire mess.  No pulling inserts out or fastening velcro laundry tabs.  Just rinsed off the solids and threw the entire thing in the diaper pail.  With the Flip, you can also just replace the insert and reuse the cover!  How great is that?

    Washing and drying was a breeze.  I just washed with my other diapers and the insert came out perfectly clean and stink free and I hung the Flip cover to dry.  The weather is finally warming up so I am excited to line dry the Flip.  I know it will dry quickly outside which is great for us.  

    I think that the Flip system is a great was for someone to try out cloth diapering or a great alternative for vacations when many cloth diaperers use disposables because they may not have a washer available.  It offers lots of great options for everyday use and it is a very affordable and easy to care for system!

    BUY IT!

    You can purchase your own Flip Diaper System at Diaper Junction!

    Check out Diaper Junction's 30 Day Test Drive as well.  It is a great program that lets you try out a variety of diapers RISK FREE!

    Green Gal Pick: Cutey Baby Modern Cloth Diaper Review

    When I was asked to have my daughter test drive the new Cutey Baby Modern cloth diaper, I was super excited.  I was excited because I have never tried an AIO diaper.  I was always put off by the drying time and I also felt like it would be really hard to keep an AIO clean because of all those layers that you can't see.  I just see traditional AIOs as a HUGE energy waster because many take two drying cycles or more.

    We had the chance to try out the Big Pink Dot Cutey Baby and it is ADORABLE.

    The Cutey Baby Modern cloth diaper is much, much different than a traditional AIO.  The first thing I noticed was how soft the outside of the diaper was.  Not like a PUL feeling, but more like cotton.  It was really nice.  Then I opened the diaper and saw that it was velcro.  Now, velcro is usually a minus for me in the cloth diaper category because I have had a ton of velcro diapers make diaper chains in the washer, pull at my other diapers and snag the material, and the velcro wears really, really fast and makes some diapers almost useless after just a few months.  But, this diaper is different because the sticky part of the velcro comes off for washing!  How smart is that?

    The inner of the Cutey Baby has a stay dry, moisture wicking material to keep baby dry and comfortable.  It also has a large cutout in the middle of the diaper that you don't normally see.  This helps to keep messes inside the diaper and also allows the inner part of the diaper to float out during a wash and dry to get really clean and dry super fast.

    The adjustments for size are on the wings of the diaper.  Just a simple snap system to make it a custom fit for your baby.  My daughter is a teeny tiny thing at 19 pounds at 17 months, so I adjusted it to the smaller setting and it was a great fit.

    So after using this diaper consistently for two weeks now, I have to say that I love it.  I hate when it is dirty because it is absorbent (lasts through my daughter's 4 hour naps), soft, easy to use, and so cute. A lot of great ideas went into this diaper and it shows because it is truly a different diaper that works without fail time and time again!

    BUY IT!

    You can purchase your own Cutey Baby Modern Cloth Diaper on Amazon.

    Thirsties Diaper Cover Review

    Thisties is the first cover I bought to go over fitteds.  I had heard great things about the Thrirsties brand and it was a VERY affordable cover.  I paid about $9 after a coupon code for this cover which I think is an excellent price for such a quality product.

    The PUL is soft on the outside and the laundry tabs and velcro are strong, which means no diaper chain in the washer.  My favorite part of the Thirsties diaper cover is the inner leg gussets.  My daughter is a skinny little thing and has chicken legs to match. So any other cover would not cover her diaper the way a Thirsties does.  I have not once had a leak with this cover and it still looks brand new despite that it is the only diaper cover I own and it gets washed very frequently.  I also love that this cover dries in about 5 minutes outside and about 10 hanging inside.

    Perfection in a cover.  In fact, I am so pleased with this cover that I never bothered to buy another cover in the past year!  I strongly suggest you get yourself one of these covers (well, not yourself, but your kid) because the quality and price are just the beginning of wonderful things about this cover!

    Kissaluvs Marvels One Size Fitted Review

    I recently purchased a bunch of diapers and I had a free Kissaluvs Marvels One Size Fiteed added to my order with a code.  Score on a free diaper!  I chose the Mocca Swirl print shown below for my daughter.

    I have been using this diaper for about a month now and I have to say that it is a great fitted.  After countless washing and dryings, it is still super soft.  Not to sound weird, but every time it comes out of the dryer, I rest it against my cheek because that warm, soft bamboo velour fabric just calls to me.  I wish I had a pillow that was as nice as the inside of that diaper.  Or maybe it's just because I do my diaper laundry at night and I am generally very tired by the time I start putting the diapers away.  Either way -- it feels like heaven. 

    My girl is tiny -- just 19 pounds at 17 months -- so I snapped down  the rise for her and was happily surprised that it didn't make the diaper super bulky like other fitted snap downs do.  I put girl down for a 4 hour nap and she woke up without a leak.  She is a belly sleeper, so this is a good test for a diaper in our house.

    I was also very happy with the drying time.  I think the microfiber inner core helps cut down on the time it takes to dry which is a huge plus for me since I usually line dry in the warmer months.

    All in all, this is a solid fitted diaper to own. My only hangup is the price -- $24.95 for a fitted made with microfiber and bamboo is hard to justify since you can find all natural fiber fitteds for the same price.  I think that if the price was a bit lower, I would actually pay for one of these diapers.

    Cloth Diapering 101

    This will be the first of many cloth diapering lessons here at Baby To Green.  I understand how overwhelming it is the first time you look at a diaper shop online.  The types of diapers, the materials of diapers, and no one diaper fits the same as another.  It can be confusing, exhausting, and annoying at times.  I will be taking questions in the comments or email them to me at  I will try to answer what I know and if I don't know, I will find someone who does!

    Today I will be focusing on the types of diapers and a breakdown of costs.  As a general rule of thumb, man made materials are cheaper than natural materials.  There are pros and cons to both.  Make sure to read directions on every piece before you wash or dry it.  No two diapers are cared for the same.

    Diaper Covers
    Covers go over certain types of diapers to give them a waterproof outer. Covers can range from $10 to $100+ depending on what material you choose. Covers come in PUL, fleece, or wool.  They close with snaps, velcro, drawstrings, or even fit on like pants would.
    Examples: Thisties covers, fleece or wool longies or shorties

    Prefolds are the most basic of cloth diapers and the most affordable.  Prefolds are rectangular shaped diapers that has 3 sections length-wise. The outer 2 sections usually have 4 layers of material and the middle absorbent section has up to 8 layers of material.  Prefolds must be folded and secured with a Snappi or pins and require a diaper cover. 

    Flats are similar to prefolds, but have just one layer throughout. These work great as liners, doublers, burp rags, and even to put under baby during a diaper change.

    Fitteds are diapers that are shaped like disposables. They close with snaps or velcro and, have elastic at the legs to contain messes.  Fitteds require a cover.  They can be inexpensive or very expensive depending on which material you choose.

    All In Ones (AIO) 
    All in ones are the closest to disposables.  They are fitted as a regular diaper, close with velcro or snaps.  They have an inner layer of suede cloth or polar fleece to keep baby dry, an absorbent core, and a waterproof outer layer. AIOs are great for dads, grandparents, and babysitters because they are very easy to use.  AIOs start at about $15 and go up to $30.  
    Examples: Kissaluvs Marvels AIO and BumGenius 3.0 AIO

    Pocket Diapers
    Pocket diapers are the mash up of the diaper world.  They are a contoured diaper much like an AIO or fitted.  They have an outer PUL layer that makes the diaper waterproof and an inner layer of suede cloth or polar fleece that keeps the baby feeling dry.  In the back or middle of the inner layer, there is a pocket where you stuff in your choice of absorbent material.  You can find inserts made of microfiber, hemp, bamboo, Zorb, or cotton.  You choose how much absorbency you need. Pocket diapers run from $15 to $25 and most come with an insert and a doubler or booster.
    Examples: Happy Heiny Pocket Diapers, Apple Cheeks 

    Hybrid Diapers
    Hybrids are the new kid on the block.  They bring together disposables and reusable.  There is a reusable outer PUL cover that contours a disposable (or washable) soaker pad.  Some companies offer biodegradable diaper inserts, some offer cloth inserts. 
    Examples: Flip system, GroBaby System
