I told the kids recently that they are allowed to get veggies any time they want, without asking, for a snack. This is so helpful in encouraging them to eat more produce each day. (Thanks, mom, for doing this when we were little!!) Carrots aren't Isaac's favorite veggie (actually, he prefers broccoli), but a while ago when I was unloading the produce coop box, he requested that I keep the tops on the carrots instead of snapping them off as usual...and Voila!! Isaac's eating carrots!
(Please take notice of our little "grow operation", as Jeremy calls it, in the background. Do you think we'll EVER get to plant these seedlings outside?)
