Among some of my most satisfying memories, are the days I spent toiling or playing in fields and gardens.

Thanks for bumping...
I'm a little behind myself here.
Had some ideas, but the vids weren't just-right.

When I was a babysitter in my teens, I used to let the kids make "creations"... (weird combinations of food). One rule was that they had to 'eat' whatever they'd create!

And they did!!! And they loved it, and even made it again the next time.
