Cool. My daughter did this with oldest boy and about to do the same with the youngest one. I wish I could set up my hillbilly greenhouse. Too much snow on the ground.
I agree also a great way to teach them about where food comes from and it's not the produce truck.
That was exactly what I was thinking about. I learn by doing and seeing rather than reading. So by planting a few tomatoes my daughter now understands and enjoys the whole process of GROWING vegetables/fruits by her own. This can be very valuable knowledge and experience for the future.
....and it is such a loving discipline, taking care of tiny plants, good for their little souls too.
Wait until she tastes the difference of homegrown vs. store. Priceless. ;D
Tomatoes from the store have no flavor.
I plant 10 to 12 plants each year. The first harvest goes to the hubby. I make sure he has enough that he gets sick of them. After that the rest gets cooked down for tomato sauce.
I remember when my dad used to grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes. Such fun times! :)
Thought this was rather interesting!
surely was :)
The first one with a veggie is my favorite we still eat.
This is my husbands version of Stir Fry. It's made with a Pepper steak like sauce but it is delicious. It's his own concoction so I don't know the recipe.
Looks great! :)
