Lil Green Thumbs Get the Garden Growing

Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With basil and carrots and flowers too! Spring might not have sprung quite yet, but there is no time like the present to get your garden in gear. Parents and teachers alike spend much of the year teaching wee ones about healthy eating habits and where their food comes from. While you can spend your weekends perusing farmers markets and showing your tot what fruits and vegetables look like prior to cooking, actually letting them get their hands dirty with the produce is another experience entirely.

Whether you have space for a full-grown vegetable garden in your yard, or only a small window box filled with herbs, now is the time to start mapping out just what your garden will look like. Selecting herbs and vegetables that make up your child's favorite dishes is one sure way to get them involved. Having fun tools to get the job done is another. Check out the products we've found to fit lil green thumbs and tell us what you plan to plant as the weather warms up.
