Veg­etable-grow­ing tips:

Use what’s avail­able — small plas­tic con­tainer, plant pot, win­dow box.

Let child help choose seeds for plant­ing.

Start with fast-grow­ing veg (peas, radishes, pump­kins, car­rots, let­tuce) — more sat­is­fy­ing for kids.

In­volve kids in ev­ery­thing, ie plan­ning what to grow, wa­ter­ing.

Har­vest­ing food from gar­den and us­ing it to make meal re­ally in­spires kids.
