Pictures from the last harvest of the year from our 2 schools in Pasco County. Chef Vince and myself peeled and chopped so the children could taste the vegetables that they  picked, and the local master gardeners  did the harvest with the children and their parents. All were amazed at the volume and size of their crop this year. We picked carrots, radishes, cucumbers and zucchini, and I made fresh cole slaw in front of the children with a 10-lb cabbage from the garden. The hot dogs were also well received but were not grown in the garden. The children of these schools have had fun in their gardens and they have learned a life-long lesson on how to grow their own food. Thank you to all who participated in this successful event, including the children, the teachers, the master gardeners and the principals of the schools who are all for this program.
