From Carol Lee Myers:

Re: Grow a garden to fire kids’ veggie-ardor (April 18): There’s a good reason why kids prefer the taste of homegrown fruits and vegetables to other foods. Kid’s who DON’T eat homegrown foods have never actually eaten real food. the “fresh food” that comes from grocery shelves is raised from varieties that have been bred to have uniform ripening time for ease in picking, tough skins for long-distance shipping, and long shelf lives. Flavor is not one of their strong points.
