What Yaakov Planted in the Garden by Joshua Weisberg
A rare treat, a guest post by my husband:)
Last week we planted winter vegetables in the garden: peas, radishes, carrots, fennel, green onions…
The kids each got a row to plant, but no one was as into it all as 3-year-old Yaakov, who planted a whole row of radishes “All by myself.”
Every morning Yaakov rushes out to the garden to see how much they have grown.
And they have grown– radishes are a quick vegetable.
The first night of Rosh Hashana when I returned from shul, Yaakov was sitting on the front steps with a big smile on his face.
“What’s up?” I asked, sitting next to him,
“Eema gave us each a bag of doritos after she lit candles.”
“That’s right. She always does that.”
“Everyone else ate theirs.”
Yaakov started chuckling
And then Yaakov stood up and laughed and raised his hands as high in the air as he could.
“I planted mine! And soon I am going to have huuuge DORITO TREES!!!!”
