Wow Broccoli!

"Wow, Broccoli!" that was Talia's words when she noticed the broccoli growing in the garden! I didn't realize my daughter had never seen how broccoli grew. My neighbor who has chickens told me about her grandchildren. She offered them eggs from her chickens. Her grandchildren replied, "No, thanks Grams, we don't eat chicken eggs. We get ours from the store." Poor Granny was appalled and incredulous. This is kinda scary! We need to let children know where food comes from!

Here is my broccoli. My very first and boy am I proud.

Yum! We love broccoli in this house. I think that is so awesome that you are teaching your kids how food is grown. Monique is teaching me how to far I can do pansies and kale and trim hydrangeas (in the snow...brr!). Maybe someday I will graduate to growing food! :)

Hi Tiffany,

Look up edible landscaping! You can plant food in your front yard. Monique is a great person to learn from. When she told me about the tomatos she grew last summer...well...I admit I was jealous! Welcome and thanks for reading my blog.
