This year, I planted an edible garden in raised flower beds. We’ve had a garden on and off for the past several years, but decided we wanted to get back at it this summer. We planted them as a family, and the girls had so much fun digging in the soil to plant these root starts. (Pro tip: I know getting the kids involved can be difficult if they tire easily. Using fresh bagged soil makes the work easier and much more fun for kids. Digging into the actual ground is much too hard!)
I got everything I needed: fruit and veggie plants, soil, and raised beds from my local Walmart store! Walmart has you covered with any fruits and veggies you’d like to grow this year. I went with strawberries, asparagus, seed potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, blueberries and blackberries. Although, those bushes sometimes take a few years to produce fruit. We use garlic and onions almost daily in our dinners. The asparagus will be a fun new vegetable to encourage the girls to try, since they grew it. The great thing about these fruits and vegetables root starts is the info you need is all on the packaging!
My daughters are already so pumped to be in charge of caring for them this summer. They’ve already taken on the responsibility of watering them daily!
