Schmidt's Farm and Greenhouse

By Aimee from The Elephant of Surprise 

Are you loving the spring weather, or what?! Nothing gets me excited like seeing spring blooms, and pretty blossoms on the trees. It's a wonderful season. If you are looking to beautify your flower beds, or plant some things for a fall harvest, you MUST check out Schmidt's Farm and Greenhouse in West Jordan. This greenhouse is brand new and beautiful. This is only their second spring open, and it is such a fun place.

Although the greenhouse is new, this is a family-run business, and has been since 1910! I love picking out flowers, but I love it even more at Schmidt's because it is such a fun experience. One of the best things they have going on are FREE gardening classes. These classes are taught by certified Master Gardeners, and cover topics like raised bed gardening, container gardening, raising vegetables, and more. Check out their website here for the full schedule, their address, and more great info!

Tres Hombres Mexican Grill and Cantina

We recently stopped by Tres Hombres Mexican Grill and Cantina and wanted to tell you about their tasty food!

Tres Hombres has been serving delicious Mexican food along the Wasatch Front since the early 1980's. Their authentic dishes are made with fresh, local ingredients.

Freshly made tortilla chips of course are a must, paired with Tres Hombres' guacamole and salsa.

We give the enchiladas two thumbs up, they are filling and delicious! Of course the tacos are pretty amazing too. Why not try both and order a combination plate?

Tres Hombres also has many options of burritos, salads, enchiladas, tacos and so much more! We think you should go often to try out all their yummy mexican food.

Make sure to order a frozen fruit drinks. We loved the strawberry daiquiri and the frozen jungle juice!

Tres Hombres also have gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Be sure and text "Hombres" to 53535 to get special deals!
