Thanks to Alison “mem68” and Kimmie for your kind welcome….
Alison I did check out http://www.crockpot365.blogspot.com thank you so much
for the link… it is the best site. its great how she photographs
ingrediants and final meal. Also… when I started getting my son into
gardening with me, we first made a scarecrow from an old toy he had, and
clothes he’d outgrown. Then we did windmills from old plastic, and he
chose some cheap statues at a cheap shop. Once home it was his job to
decorate his part of garden. I then helped him plant his first seeds…
which were sunflowers, and he was so enthusiastic to keep planting cause
he loved “his own” garden! Weeks later his little face was in shock when
he realised his sunflowers were actually growing faster and taller then
him! I don’t know what he did to those seeds…. but they ended up over
150cms high with flowers that were bigger than my head!
I believe the trick here is to let them do something that makes it
“theirs” and unlike mums part of the garden… his is special to him
cause its all how he wanted!
Once you can get them growing veggies…. try to get them to stop eating
what they grow!!! My son harvests his own veg he grew too as “mem68”
also said her little one also does.
I know im rabbling on a bit… but… Just imagine the health benifits
both fitness wise and nutrition wise our childen would grow up with and
pass onto their kids if they continue to eat their own organic home
Lastly… my first loaf of bread was succesfull! My son told everyone
that I made bread! He thought it was fantastic! We ate the last of it
with the first crock pot meal I made… creamy curried pumpkin, carrot
and potato soup… was delishious.
Take care all.
