Penny Potter, a fifth-grade student, leaned over Percival Perkins left shoulder and peered down into his powder blue lunch pail.</p><p>I eat potato chips for lunch on Monday said Percival. I see. said Penny as she walked away pondering to herself that potato chips are probably not the healthiest choice for her pal, Percival.</p></li><li><p>Potato Chips?

Penny said to Percival the very next day at school, while passing by his packed lunch. Tuesday I eat fruit loops, but only the purple ones, said Percival Perkins resolutely.</p><p>Of course you do, Penny muttered as she walked away feeling slightly perturbed.</p><p>Gummy Worms! proclaimed Penny on Wednesday at noon time, Percival Perkins that cannot be your entire lunch! </p><p>They taste sour, explained Percival Perkins, I like sour.</p><p>I quite understand, said Penny feeling a little sour herself.</p></li><li><p>Are those fruit loops, Percy?

He pulled Polly Pratts pigtails and he poked Pablo with pencils. The sugar from the gummy worms made him so frantic he couldnt sit still. Worst of all, Percivals tummy began to ache. This is positively painful! Percival pronounced and off to the see the school nurse he went.</p></li><li><p>After lunch, Percival couldnt sit still during silent reading hour.

There is an old, but wise, expression that says we are what we eat and in that case, Percy, you are a sour gummy worm. Tomorrow I would like to show you a special place designed for particular and picky eaters like you. </p></li><li><p>After school that same day, Penny Potter began to speak.

Fourth grade students were tending to the broccoli, turnips, and romaine and mustard greens. Spinach, protested Percival Perkins. </p><p>Patiently Penny smiled and said, Yes, spinach, perhaps you didnt know Percival just a handful a week of spinach or any other dark green vegetable planted in our garden will keep your lungs healthy, make your bones stronger and give you a smarter brain.</p><p>Pffff. Percival scoffed and walked away.</p></li><li><p>Thursday, Penny leaned over Percival Perkins left shoulder and together they peered down into the rows of dark green vegetable planted in the school garden.

Predicting a particular and picky eater like Percival, Penny posed a question to the student. </p><p>Have you ever even tasted a carrot Percival? He paused, thought for a moment and said, I positively have not. </p></li><li><p>Peeking at the orange section of the garden Percival panicked as he saw the carrots and pumpkins.

See you tomorrow and bring the rest of your class. Im not sure about this said a perplexed Percival Perkins. </p><p>Walking home from school that day, Percival pondered Pennys words. He was sure that he would not want to miss a picnic, but his lips pursed when he thought about eating some of the vegetables Penny pointed out. </p><p>Pushing open the door upon arriving at home, Percival walked directly towards the fruit bowl perched on the kitchen counter. He observed the colorful green grapes, yellow bananas and red apples. Was Penny possibly on point? Percy pondered out loud.</p><p>Quickly, Percival pushed the thought out of his mind and went out to play. </p></li><li><p>As they walked back to Percivals classroom Penny said, I would be very pleased to invite you to a very special picnic in the school garden.

Penny welcomed the class to sit. She presented two large platters covered with perfectly polished lids. </p><p>Percival stared at the platters with uncertainty. Penny smiled and removed the lid of the first platter to reveal a rich hearty green spinach salad with crisp white onions and crunchy orange carrotsand a bright assortment of ripe juicy fruit. </p></li><li><p>At lunchtime on Friday, Percival Perkins sat patiently with his classmates at a large table covered with a red checked table cloth ready for a picnic.

At first, Percival was panicky, afraid to try new foods. He took just one bite.</p><p>Percival was amazed at the rainbow of colors that lay before him, such delicious food that came from his schools very own garden. </p></li><li><p>Lifting the second lid, Percival spied a zesty tostada platter with black beans, yellow corn, and fresh red tomatoes.

He placed himself at the lunch table in between pals and Penny Pratt and pronounced publicly I am presently pondering how passionate I am about eggplant. Penny Pratts ears perked up and responded, Percival, you are no longer a particular and picky eater, I am so proud of you. </p><p>As his mouth started to water, Penny patted her favorite particular and picky eater on his head feeling perfectly pleased.

Heres how: </p><p>1. Find an adult to help you--pick someone fun!</p><p>2. Pick a container to use. Be creative! What do you have sitting around your house? An old bucket? A tub? A teapot? An old toy or baskets? Any of these could work. Even recycled items like a juice box or plastic bottle can be used for a container AND youll be helping the environment. Be sure to ask your adult helper about which container you should use.</p><p>3. Choose a plant that will work for you and your house. Ask questions like: how much sunshine will it get? And how big is my container? Its also good to pick a plant that will grow a dwarf or small plant. Turn the page to see a list of some good (container) candidates. </p><p>4. Prepare your container. Start by figuring out how the plant will be able to drain excess water when you water it. If the container youve chosen doesnt have any holes, youll need to make them with your adult helper. Be careful though, the holes cant be too big or the soil mixture may come out! If your container does have holes that are big, you might try putting some rocks or newspaper in the bottom.</p></li><li><p>Food For Thought </p><p>Why is Penny concerned that Percy is eating potato chips for lunch? </p><p>Why couldnt Percy sit still during the silent reading hour? </p><p>What do you think Penny meant when she said We are what we eat? </p><p>Why do you think Percy was nervous about eating the food at the picnic? </p><p>Why do you think Percy decided to pack his lunch pail with vegetables the week after the picnic? </p><p>Taste The Rainbow </p><p>What color is your favorite fruit or vegetable? </p><p>What are all the different color fruits and vegetables that you can think of? </p><p> Do It Yourself Container Garden </p><p>You can have a garden and try vegetables like Percival and Penny!
