This is one of my favorite posts to write: reflections from my boys.
JUDE, AGE 8
1.What were your favorite vegetables to grow? My favorite things were my kohlrabi – just the taste of it. Also, sungold tomatoes, since I just had one, so good! Cucumbers were possibly my favorite things to have because they grow a lot of things. Look at a cucumber one day. Go on a vacation for a week and it’s about a foot long.
2.What do you want to do next year? Next time I’ll do corn again. Corn grows huge. From a small seed to one of the biggest veggies. Maybe sunflowers, too.
REX, AGE 10
1.What were your favorites? I haven’t picked my chillis yet…Basil, and cucumbers and chives grew well. Onions didn’t cuz Jude ripped them out. Baseball kept me busy, so I wasn’t as into my garden this year.
2.Next year? Same.
MORRIS, AGE 5
1.What were your favorites? Getting peppers and growing carrots and green beans. I like picking the peppers cuz I knew what would be. I liked carrots cuz when you pull them out you see what’s growing.
2.Next year? I want to grow onions cuz they’re fun to get out of the ground.
