Spring Harvest Festival vol.2

 Many bunches of komatunas, pak-chois, and spinaches were harvested at this Festival. My daughter and her friend enjoyed dealing with chores like washing and packing the vegetables. I'm happy they were involved in my gardening activity.






My spinaches

The kids were washing komatunas and spinaches.
  Takeru, my daughter's freind, didn't get used to dealing
  vegetables.

My first pak chois seemed to bolt soon so we had to harvest them
despite their smaller size. I should have thinned out more of them.

I remember years ago when my kids were small we often had to explain to their friends what the vegetable we were eating were called - often really simple things like potatoes (they only knew pre-prepared chips) and sweet corn on the cob (they had only seen it in the frozen kernels-only form at the supermarket. I think it is important to educate young people about food as early in their lives as possible.

I also believe it's important to educate kids about where our foods come from.
The education gives kids opportunities to understand not only how hard growing vegetables is but the fact that human beings have to kill plants and animals to live, which means we live on sacrifice.
