Get Your Greens

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.


  1. A few more years and he might not find shelling peas as fun! Keep these pictures close as evidence!!

    1. No, he probably won't! Oddly enough, these days I find sitting and shelling peas to be pretty relaxing.

  2. Oh my goodness, your boy is so cute! (I may be a bit biased, though, because I have my own little blonde-haired-blue-eyed wonder.) I think it is so wonderful for kids to eat their food straight out of the garden...so many don't have that opportunity or understanding. Good for you - and yummy for him!

  3. Oh wow, what a cabbage! And how cute is it that he's shelling peas. Jude hasn't gotten the hang of it yet, but you're right when you say that it's like a magic trick to them.
