What is the fascination of playing with and eating dirt?The boys inspected their dirt before tasting it. Only the finest for them.The boys proceeded to locate my Serrano pepper plant. Those that are not familiar with chili peppers, Serrano peppers are three times hotter than jalapeños. They have great flavor and I absolutely recommend them over jalapeños. Just use less! The boys decided to find out what one of these red vegetables tasted like. Ethan is in the red next to the pepper plant.Here are their faces after taking a bite.
I was a bad mom because I didn't rush to get them milk. I wanted them to "feel the burn" so they would stop grabbing my plants. Because not only did they pull off the peppers but took some tomatoes and chomped into them like apples. Good news is that Ethan and Bennett have not touched the peppers since this day. Man, I love my little dirt eaters! Keepin' it interesting.
