Bert, he's a funny kid. He loves to eat spinach straight from the garden but won't touch it when it is on his plate at supper time. Peas are fantastic raw, only so-so cooked. So these days, we basically let him eat as much raw out of the garden as he wants and don't worry too much when his plate looks a little light on the veggies.
Here's our jolly little green giant, helping out with the cabbage and peas that are coming on.
He acts like it is the best magic trick ever for Keith and I to pop open a pea pod for him, and he's starting to get the hang of it himself.
