Nothin' like startin' 'em out early

Ever wonder where kids learn to eat right? Well obviously they teach themselves. I often have an old milk crate full of fresh vegetables from my huge garden sitting on the floor so we can use them up. My youngest is just learning to crawl, and she always heads straight to the milk crate. Just last night, she got a tomato and actually took a big bite out of it!

Hey mom, can I pick the tomato for dinner tonight?

Wow! Which one do I want?

Ah ha! Here it is the perfect one!

Mmm, rum, rum, tastes good too!

Oh yeah, don't forget the corn on the cob.

I have a garden space that is 20' X 70'. It's huge. We had tomatoes, potatoes, green peppers, jalapenos, Anaheim peppers, peas, beans, onions, cucumbers, and zucchini. We actually planted corn but it never came up. So we ate a lot of my mom's corn. Thanks mom.

That is such a great idea, maybe my boys would eat more if I left it out for them to explore.
