My gardening efforts are always a joint endeavor with the children: they helped me get peppers and tomatoes started from seed way back in February, helped dig holes for our fruit trees, held boards and even helped drill holes to build our raised beds–but they’ve been begging me for a garden of their own to take care of, and we finally got one set up.
Each child gets their own square to plant whatever they like:
We used both starts and seeds—kids love planting starts because they can see something growing in the garden right away.
They planted cherry tomatoes, broccoli, purple cabbage, bell peppers, and carrots.
Yep, even the baby got in on the act:
He couldn’t wait until harvest time to take a bite—of the root ball.
The work is done—time to admire our accomplishments!
