….is (of course) the broccoli you grow yourself!
One of my Garden Ambassadors harvested the broccoli yesterday.
And after thorough washing, it went back to the classroom. From stem to mouth in the same afternoon!
P.S. Today I saw some of the fifth graders, and I asked them how they liked the broccoli, compared to other broccoli they had eaten. One said, “More moist.” Another said, “Fresher, sweeter.” A third summed it up: “It tasted more green.”
They also said the teacher offered seconds, and the kids rushed the bowl. (Who says kids won’t eat vegetables?)
