    Hi Jane! Thanks for the kind comments! These kids love veggies... and eat almost any veggie... The little guy (last summer) was at the garden with me.... and I told someone that they like most veggies... Ashton said, "I don't like to eat eggplant... I only like to pick them..." I said, "Ashton you love eggplant and I can't think of a single veggie that you don't like...." He said, "Well.... I... don't... like.... EGGPLANT !!!" LOL
