Do you have a garden?

In an answer to my other question I talked about a garden my son wants to grow and it made me think of the garden my dad grew when we were kids.

He had a huge garden that I only wish I could have. Dad even sold some of the vegetables he grew in our local grocery store.

Do you grow a garden with your kids? What do you grow?

  • I have chives and garlic, for some reason the stinky stuff only grows in my hard clayish soil.

  • We just planted our first garden recently. It's very small (we live in military housing and do not have much of an outdoor space) but we have tomatoes, peppers, green beans, thyme, basil and some flowers around the perimeter. My daughter LOVED planting it.

  • Yup! We have a medium sized garden and we grow...
    6 tomato plants
    8 different kinds of peppers
    3 eggplants.... 2 regular, 1 white eggplant
    2 honeydew
    2 cucumber

    love it! not only does it save us money but my DD who is almost 3 gets to help with it...she helps weed and pick...and sometimes water....
    Then we make our own sauce out of the tomatoes and freeze it for the year.

  • Yep! We raise corn, tomatoes, green beans, lima beans, yellow squash, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers. We have raised eggplant, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and a whole bunch of other stuff, but since the children are grown, we've kind of cut back.
