Garden Eats!

Nothing like pausing the backyard play to pick some garden bounty and ring the snack bell! It’s amazing how much more open children are to eating new things when they partake in the process. Picking the fruits and veggies from the earth, cutting, mashing, and tossing made it that much more plausible for curious, yet timid, little palettes. (Thank you again Estee Berkowitz – now start with your radical-homemakers mom blog already!!!) Chunks of avacado, cherry tomatos, and chopped leek was never consumed by children with such gusto! Plus, watching it go straight from earth to mouth… the nutrient viability must have been intense! :)

Freida pulled a leek from the ground and exclaimed “that was freaking awesome!” – to my delight and Estee’s horror. :))
