Cleaning Vegetables

While cleaning vegetables today, Eamon grabbed one of the beets.

"Daddy, look the beet has a tentacle."

"That is the root"

"See. It is moving with it's tentacles."

After a brief explanation about vegetables not having tentacles, Eamon proceeded to move onto the brocoli. Perhaps he is a budding Jacque Cousteau...


  1. That's cute, now he could be heading towards being an organic farmer!!

  2. It is only fitting that he is into things that grow, his great-great grandfather (1st generation from Ireland) and his great-great-great grandfather (from Ireland) were both farmers. I guess it runs in the blood!
