That was what my 8 year old told me at dinner tonight. My gardener's and my mother's heart sang. We were eating an organic mixed veggie mix from Trader Joes and he kept picking out the green beans and telling me they didn't taste like real green beans. Well, how about that?
We then started talking about the fact that I was trying to grow all of our veggies. The kids have always helped me pick out different seeds for the garden. We like trying different colored carrots and such. Tonight we were debating whether it was better to start a permanent strawberry bed, or an asparagus bed. The kids both like asparagus, but of course picked strawberries. Hubby picked the asparagus. I may have to build one more bed.
The next conversation was the kids listing all the vegetables that were their favorites. They both ran out of fingers and toes. How cool is that? Since my Fedco catalog arrived this afternoon, you know what I'll be doing as soon as I post this.
