Fresh Delivery

A little snack fresh from the garden was just what the little guy was looking for after some good play in the backyard.
Yep, he gobbles them right up. Nothing beats fresh off the vine.

There is something very special about eating stuff straight from the garden. It is a very primal instinct to forage and eat. I experienced this as a child, now look what happened. I hope for you that you have inspired your children to do the same!

Our peas never made it inside the house - the boys would check the vines every day and eat whatever they found.

Must've been a good day from eating from the garden. My little one found the first fresh strawberries. Growing your own veggies is a great way to get little ones to eat them.

They are so wonderful fresh off the vine. I had but a handful from the few sugar snaps I planted this year but they were delicious. The birds got the ones I forgot about that got too big.

Oh, snap peas! I eat them fresh off the vine too, can't remember if my daughter will eat them, we'll see (I'm far behind you, blossoms only appeared this week). Hooray for little ones and fresh garden snacks!

Very cute, Melanthia! I bet more kids will eat their veggies if home grown ;)

Like Suzanne's, none of my peas have made it into the house yet either, except there are no little ones here who are responsible! ;) Yum!

My girls weren't big vegetable-eaters when they were little, except when it came to the veggies they picked themselves from the garden. I'm convinced they learned to like vegetables because they got to watch them grow and could pick them themselves. As they got a little older they would eat them during meals, but there was a time when the only veggies they ate came right off the plants, still warm from the sun.

Looks as if you're getting a good start on Little Sprouts gardening. What's more likely to entice a kid into the plant world than peas or carrots right out of the garden?

How cute, I think it's important that children realize that food comes from the ground and not a store.

I remember as a kid the peas never made it to the table! So good that he loves that yummy freshness- he'll never be able to eat frozen or canned knowing so young what they are supposed to taste like! Happy gardening to you :)
