The children discovered a condition that goes along with gardening. Cabbage worms decided that our broccoli is really tasty. The children enjoyed playing with the worms that we picked off. One little guy said, "My new pet." Mrs. Gumry told the children to put the worms in a jar when they were finished playing and she would take them home to her chickens. There was a loud, "No!" from the children. (The worms did go home to visit the chickens. The chickens loved their new "pets."
