Starting a vegetable garden can be fun and an inexpensive way to bring healthy food to your kitchen table. Even better is sharing the experience with my children by having them plant, water and harvest. Over the course of the summer we grew cucumber, lettuce, tomato, pepper, and basil from our Barry Foods “Grow With Us” seeds. I made many caprese salads, cucumber salads, mixed green salads, and stuffed peppers. Now that summer has ended, we are at the tail end of our tomato and pepper growing season. All of the “Grow With Us” vegetables grew quite nicely. Time to start thinking about next year!
So answer the age old question- how did your garden grow?
