I am. The last few years they've been specifically requesting their own garden space to plant what they want. I thought it was so nice they were learning something. Then they tell me they want their own garden so they can eat all the want without me telling them to stay out of it lol. But they'll plant their own seeds or transplants and water it. And they'll help harvest my big garden. 2 years ago I had a large row of pinto beans that were drying on the vines, and a big storm was coming. So we all went out to pick the dried beans pods before the rain. My then-3yo kept picking every bean pod and asking "Is this one ok?" If I said yes she put it in the bucket. If I said no she threw it on the ground! Luckily most were dried and I only lost a few bean pods that way.Please teach them to garden and can. I wish I had learned as a kid. Had to learn both as an adult, and I'm still a real beginner at canning, etc.
Canning they've decided is too much work lol. But they do help prep things for canning and help me gather the jars.
The downside to our little suburban homestead- it has produced picky eaters in the sense that they only like fresh food and not conventional store-bought in certain categories. They eat pretty much everything and some things like broccoli store-bought is ok. But store-bought cucumbers, beets, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, green beans (1 kid and the husband), eggs (we have chickens) and milk (I buy raw milk from a local dairy) won't get touched unless it's organic, heirloom or from the farmer's market because it tastes the closest to garden fresh. But there really is a taste difference.
