  1. glad to see that the some kids are shown the way to take the environment more like a mother nature figure. Now to make the picture truly idyllic, Lorenzo’s mum should think of finding a way not to engrave in his mind that army patterned clothes are OK to wear as a child !

  2. I would have never learned to love gardening the way I do if it hadn’t been for a neighbor down the street. He always had a vegetable garden and always let me help pick the green beans. I loved it. It was like finding Easter eggs but I liked the taste ten times better than a boiled egg. Thank you to anyone who shares the joy of gardening with a young person. Kudos to you!
