"Out of the mouths of babes"

I've been on my hippie soapbox before talking about great economic lessons like supply and demand and scarcity of resources. (Hee hee, the Social Science teacher in me will not go away.)  This video is yet another reason why you should think about the food choices you make and to perhaps try growing some of your own food.

Seeing Green

Once I harvested the broccoli for super bowl, I honestly didn't think much about it.  It was tucked away in its warm sun box and I walked out a few times to give it water.  Needless to say I was a little surprised when I walked out one day to find this:

Let us out!! Let us out!!!

More delicious broccoli than I had use for!!  

Either the foil light conditions, the fertilizer, or just the amazingly rich soil led to quite a bumper crop. =)

Wow.  Good thing fresh broccoli is so delicious.  =)
Once again, though, the poor headless broccoli kinda makes me laugh.  Hee hee.
