Default Fresh eggs?? Thats too weird!!

I had a work meeting yesterday so I asked my neighbor friend to let my 9yo go to her house after school. As a thank you I gave her some zucchini and the days eggs -four of them. she said thanks for the zucchini but about the eggs, I just don't know that's too weird!!! I convinced her to at least try them. My husband think its funny that people don't have a problem eating eggs from the store that are months old - but the thought of ones fresh from the chicken are strange. She's a really nice girl - but def not a country girl. Hope I can convert her.

My husband's cousin used to get eggs from me, he didn't trust the green ones. He thought that there was something wrong with them, he p*ssed me off over the price I was charging (how dare I charge 11 cents MORE than the market) so I made sure I put LOTS of green eggs in his carton.

He doesn't get my eggs anymore, he deserved crappy, tasteless market eggs. I don't miss him at all.

Lots of people ask, how do I know theres not something growing in them. I say how do you know the eggs at the store are good. Then I tell them as long as they don't sit on them, they have nothing to worry about.

Really? Have you tried getting them involved in the growing process? Or even if they helped in the kitchen that might make them more interested in trying home grown foods.
