It's interesting how many garden, plant, and related news items pop up on my computer screen. Here's a few I've seen of late.
I'm a fresh fruit and veggie nut and do my best to pass on this love to my family. Imagine my delight when I received the following text message from our youngest who just started college : u r gonna be so proud of me … I just ate lunch at a farmers market … amazing fresh veggies everywhere. YES! He's enjoying the wonders of finding fresh, locally grown produce in the middle of a city … and now I know he will continue to seek out and enjoy fresh fruit and veggies, much like his older siblings. Growing up in a rural area in a family that gardens certainly increases the likelihood that children will learn to enjoy fresh produce. So many kids grow to adulthood knowing only the fruits and veggies found in cans or frozen plastic bags – if they eat fruit and veggies at all.
