The short attention span generation.

I've had half a dozen kids each of these last couple years get totally bent out of shape when they discover that the small plot of veg[0] they plant with their 4-H/FFA class won't be harvestable for a couple weeks. I've been teaching this class[1] for about twenty years now, and never saw kids that divorced from reality until about 2012. Seems that anything that takes longer that 10 (or 30) seconds isn't worth pursuing anymore. Sad, that.

Who's going to grow my bacon when I'm in my dotage?

[0] Mostly lettuces, radishes, hakurei turnips, spinach, scallions ... fast growing crops.

[1] "Backyard Kitchen Gardens" ... hey, we all gotta eat!
