If convincing your kids to eat their vegetables is a nightly battle, this month’s HGTV Family Gardening Club project just might bring peace to the dinner table. For May, we’re growing lettuce, carrots and radishes in a low-cost window box farm. You can plant these annual seeds anytime from mid-spring to early summer. Kids will love monitoring their carefully planted seeds as they sprout into edible plants and turn into a delicious salad. And what child doesn’t love to play in the dirt?
If you missed April’s gardening project, no worries. Gather the family to make a vermicomposting bin full of mess-free pets (red worms) that will turn kitchen scraps into plant food. These wiggly creatures take up little space and help create compost your plants will love.
