Getting the garden started

Easy enough for a four year old!
This weekend, we spent some time planting seeds for our garden - cucumber, carrots, watermelon, cantaloupe, corn, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, spinach, squash, and zucchini. In about 6 weeks, they should be ready to plant in the ground - giving us a leg up on our garden!

Sharing this process with your kids is a great way of getting them involved with the preparation of vegetables and fruits. Seeing this project through from seeds to on their plate is quite a learning experience!

I bought everything to grow 88 plants for about $20. Well worth every penny, and then some! Not only will you reap delicious fruits and vegetables, but you get to have a fun and educational project with your kids!

This is the first time I've used one of these mini greenhouse systems, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!
