Spring and summer plantings. Requires a tomato cage and a 5’ tall spiral or other support.
What a great summer activity! This pretty garden is loaded with kid-friendly vegetables like carrots, cherry tomatoes and sugar snap peas. They're all easy to grow, nutritious and make a very fun and rewarding project for children of any age. Also includes cheerful flowers as companion plants. Although sowings start in spring, the main action is in the summer with succession plantings and ongoing harvests. Included in this plan are:
- Cherry tomato
- Dwarf sunflower (companion plant)
- Marigold (companion plant)
You can choose the exact varieties you’d like to grow, for example butter versus romaine lettuce. For suggestions and inspiration, feel free to browse our What to Grow page.
