"Mom, you forgot to pack me a snack today, but that's ok because we made scones and had them with homemade butter and jam.. and then we went into the garden and were allowed to eat as much lettuce, carrots, radishes and snap peas as we'd like." - my 9-year-old after farm camp today
He's all chummy with the goats, knows the chicks by name and last night's dinner conversation was an animated discussion on the best things to do with the garlic scapes the kids harvested yesterday.
This is the second farm camp the kids have tried in our area. Some of you may remember Stone Barns, which I wrote about a few years back here, here, here, here, here and here. Both are amazing. A lot of driving for yours truly, but super cool for the kids.
