I'm gearing up for Spring and excited about re-doing my planters in front of my house. Eventually I'll get my garden boxes planted too. (I took last year off and found that I really missed the fresh fruit and veggies. It's nice to say to my kids as I'm making dinner, "hey, go pick some strawberries to go with dinner.")
I like to grow things I know my kids will enjoy. Zucchini, strawberries, green beans, watermelon, carrots, corn.
One year I tried potatoes...but that didn't work out for me. I've also tried lettuce one year and again, no success. But I think I'll try that one again.
It's always fun to get out in the sun and dig in the dirt with my kids. And they love to root through all the plants when the fruits of their labor begin to show. And maybe...just maybe...it makes them taste a little better too. I can use all the help I can get in the eat-your-vegetables department! :)
