An Autumn Veggie Guide for Kids

Henry returned from pre-school this week with a small bag of soil and instructed me to keep it on the kitchen windowsill. I was sceptical but now we have something (I think peas) growing.

So, a quick text to an agronomist friend for some planting tips and our weekend is sorted. If you’re looking for some inspiration here’s what she suggests:

  • Choose fast-growing veggies, or the kids will lose interest.
  • Microgreens will deliver a fast turnaround and they'll grow in a pot.
  • Broccolini is a regenerative plant so it will continue to produce secondary heads.
  • Beetroot is fun to harvest.
  • Kids can snack on snow peas straight from the garden.
  • Silverbeet always yields well.

Whilst we have dirty hands I think we will also pop some bulbs in for spring – you know we love colour at French Soda!

And, if you are looking for the perfect kids gardening boots then you should look at our new gumboot range.
