@w-o-holmes My dear fellow, you mustn’t jump to conclusions. I posted almost as soon as I wrote it out. 😏
Yes, it is partly from experience. Our family has planted several gardens over the past summers, although we haven’t done so for a few years. My mom was talking about wanting to plant another one, and my sister and I protested. That’s when I came up with the line, “No way! All that work, and then you’ll make us eat them!” So that’s the story.
