>It isn’t too late to start growing your vegetables for the summer!
Decide what vegetables you would like to grow and buy the seeds. If it is still chilly at night in your area, you may need to start your vegetables in small pots indoors, then move them out into the garden when it warms up a bit more.
If you plant a few seeds this week, wait two weeks, then plant another bunch of seeds, your vegetables will be ready to pick and eat at different times this summer.
If you live in an apartment or condo and don’t have a garden, you can grow your vegetables in a planter on a balcony or in front of a large, sunny window. As well, some communities have community gardens where everyone can come together to grow their own plots in a larger garden.
Have fun eating your yummy veggies! (And don’t forget to water them!)
Make this a family activity by getting the whole family involved. Each member picks a vegetable they would like to grow and they take care of them.
This activity promotes food knowledge, independence and responsibility.
