They really enjoyed being on the podcast and they asked me if they could return again in the future. I'm sure they will. Smiling

I take back everything I ever said about any other podcast being the best podcast ever. This is THE very very best! I've spent most of my life teaching children, but this is truly the first time I've sat back and learned so much from 4 little ones.

What can I say? This podcast is entirely beautiful; every word is priceless.
Thank you S, A, J, and K. Your words are informative, well spoken, impressive and amazing. Thank you so very much.

Your children are a fine reflection of you and Trish and it was great listening to them talk about their experiences in their gardens and hearing of their future endeavors with the farmers market, seed business etc. I look forward to future podcasts with them as guest speakers! Great job! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

I love how articulate they are and the way they speak, especially J and K, their voice inflections really remind me of both you and Trish! Like listening to younger versions of you! And they were so clever, never slipped up saying names, kept to the initials. Good job kids! So nice to hear from you and how much you are learning in your young gardening lives! Thumbs up

Now I want some fresh heirloom tomatoes and watermelon. Green Grin!

I just got home, what a wonderful bed time podcast this was. I will be having sweet dreams of children gardening, saving seeds, farmers markets, raising cattle, and children learning to be self sufficient in today's world. Keep up the good work S, A, J, and K, can't wait to hear the return podcasts to come.

I agree with all the above statements. And I want to put my order in for some of those tomato seeds. When will they be ready?

Hurray! Hi momma Trish. Group hug

That's because Raffle Man eats them before she can get a picture - but he asks first, of course!
I loved that mental image she painted when she was talking about the little guy. Sweet!! What a helper he is!

He is a great helper, indeed. And cute as a button, as you can imagine.

She'll load up a basket this Saturday morning for the market and I'll make sure we get a photo. Smiling

I learned a long time ago to never underestimate the ability of children. When we believe in them and they believe in themselves, they can and will be amazing.

What a fantastic "journey" I was on this past hour! Great interview, wonderful guests, and an excellent database of knowledge flowing from those children's minds and experiences! A big bona-fide "yee-haw" (kudos) to you all, parents and children.

Great to hear of the children's interest in growing their very own, be it veggies, cactus, or cows. And being active members at the local farmers' market is an extra plus; that in itself will certainly contribute to a more well-rounded experience.

Great going! Ya done good! I'll be looking forward to your updates, latest adventures, experiments, and newest creations.
