There is no better way to get your kids to love eating fresh vegetables and fruits than to grow them yourselves! With the sun shining this weekend, find some time to get out there with your kids and plant! A few great picks that I love to plant, and that kids will often enjoy, are: snap peas, pole beans, strawberries, raspberries, apples, cherry tomatoes, and spinach/kale/chard. You might be surprised what kids will eat when they grow it themselves and eat it fresh!
Not enough space for gardening? It only takes a small space to grow a few things, especially something simple like pole beans that can grow straight up a pole. But if you have no space at all for gardening, try a community garden plot! It may just be more important than a parking spot. Find out how to get one here.
