They love a two minute romp through the garden to point out how much things have changed and what critters they can spot. I love a two hour sojourn where I can lose myself in tending to all aspects of gardening.
They love to pick and eat a little bit of everything - peas, beans, carrots, dill, green onions, etc. I love to pick every bush clean until I have bushels of vegetables for several suppers to come.
They love to go play under the big maple tree. I love to stay in the garden just a "few more minutes".
I am learning that there are many ways to love a garden. My greatest wish is that they will continue to love it - in someway - their entire life.
