Interviews

Thought I’d conduct a few interviews from the boys to hear what they’re thinking about gardening.

Peppermint because it grows awesomely and harvesting is once every week.

1.What is your favorite plant in your garden and why?

Probably my corn. It’s the tallest of them all and it’s growing so well.

2.What do you like about having a garden?

I like to get the worms and put them in the garden. I also like seeing my cucumber plant grow and I can’t wait to get a big cucumber. –Whoa! Look at this cucumber! He’s lost his bud. Cucumbers can really be sneaky. You may think it’s too early for them to be grown and then there’s this HUGE one at the bottom.

3.What is your least favorite part of gardening?

The weeds. I don’t like weeds. I like almost anything about gardening.

4.What have you learned about plants or your garden that you didn’t know before?

About that big, giant, tomato-biting caterpillar. He was a big, fat thief, stealing our food when he didn’t ask. That’s a thief.

5.What is your favorite veggie to eat?

Cucumbers. Potatoes actually. Potatoes are my favorite vegetable, actually.

Worms grow with water. They do, don’t they, Mom?
