Get em while they're young

The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago; the second-best time is now. Chinese proverb

I have been really overwhelmed with all of the positive feedback on this blog and on my new adventure. I'm working on the next post but in the meantime I wanted to post this adorable photo of Abby. She is the daughter of a former neighbor in Decatur. Her mom sent me this picture with an email about how much Abby loves to work in the garden and eat fruits and vegetables. This year they are planting a vegetable garden that is kid friendly. They have chosen lots of different brightly colored varieties to capture Abby's attention and keep her interested. They are planting neon light Swiss chard, watermelon radish, 3 types of beets (red, golden and chioggia), multicolored carrots, 6 types of basil (lemon, lime, christmas, purple, Thai and sweet basil) and more. What a great way to get your kids interested while they are young.
