Growing your own vegetables with kids
We have been growing our own vegetables with the boys for the last six years. In fact this Easter weekend MadDad had to replace some of the boards on the raised beds he made over six years ago.
We have a standard back garden, but we have made room in it to have three raised beds and two oak barrels. We also have various pots and planters which we grow in too.
I am going to share with you our secrets, hints and tips over the coming months.
What we are growing this year:
Bed one - New potatoes (planted this weekend)
Bed two - Carrots, beans (to be planted)
Bed three - cauliflowers and cabbage (to be planted)
oak barrels - peas (to be planted)
planters - lettuce and shallots (planted) tomatoes (to be planted)
Hanging baskets - Strawberries (to be planted)
MadDad is also going to build a new bed and relocate the compost basket.
Do you grow with your kids?
