Here's one for all you gardeners:
A lighter story with no chemicals involved!!
Had the kids out in the garden with me this morning. As we were
re-planting, watering, and trying to salvage what damage had been done by
the goats, I was explaining to my 2yr old how the garden would grow all his
favorite things to eat. He loves salad, cukes, tomatos, peppers (of any
flavor!), watermelons, and most of things kids these days hate to eat. I
guess I used the wrong words saying that it would grow ALL his favorite
things, and he quickly picked up on that. I should have said all his
favorite veggies & some of his fav fruits. Next thing I know he was asking
me if he could grow some fried chicken, french fries, pretzels, chips,
pickles, and pizza too. I explained that I would make pickles from the
cukes, and french fries & chips could be made from the potatos. Then told
him about the fried chicken and the chickens in the yard. But could not
make him understand about the pizza. Told him that mommy would use the
tomatos to make the pizza sauce, but that the pepperoni, crust & cheese just
couldn't be grown in the garden. He's still determined that he's gonna grow
a pizza...............oh well, there is only so much you can explain to a
2yr old I guess. At least nothing else was said about the pretzels.
