To the Garden

By Mark Bishop, Deputy Director

For months, Henry’s favorite video was this little YouTube gem, To the Garden(WARNING – If you don’t have kids, you will find yourself throwing a brick at your computer after watching this video.) so we were excited this summer to start planting our garden with Henry. 

It’s starting to pay off:


He’s now running around telling us how beautiful the cucumbers are (or the “computers” as he’s been saying) or how delicious the tomatoes smell. He’s so excited. And other than some chives, he hasn’t even picked much yet this season. 

But I can’t wait for him to pick his own tomato. That’s going to be fun.

Getting your kids’ hands dirty and involved with food early on is so fun and rewarding. I can’t wait to see if he likes eating his home-grown tomatoes — we’ll keep you posted.
