Getting Kids Involved

Inadvertent Farmer

Over at The Inadvertent Farmer are several really neat ideas and a contest for getting your kids invloved in gardening.

While for most of us, gardening right now is putting our gardens to bed, some of us can still garden for a few months.  We live in zone 8a and can garden without fear until November.  My kids are already a part of our garden, they each have their own box or bed of plants.

Here is my daughters, to date, I'll update again (fill in the empty boxes) when we get her first red tomato and then again when the season is done.

There are so many neat ways to get kids involved, and I like the added benefit of them being occupied so I can have some garden time all to myself!

My daughter has a little plot in which to grow things from the time she was rather young. Grown up now, she still loves gardening.
