    Tips for Gardening with Kids

     – Kids need to understand that plants need space to grow. That little zucchini seed turns into a plant that needs about 2 feet of space and then some in the garden. Carrot seeds planted on top of each other need to be thinned unless they’re spaced out to allow for growth.

    Talk about how deep to dig the hole. Some seeds can grow with a little bit of soil like lettuce and spinach. Potatoes need a deeper hole, plus dirt/mulch mounded over the top.

    Talk about how tall the plants get. Sunflowers that grow 5 feet tall will shade plants around them, or can serve as a support for bean vines.

    Be prepared to work alongside your kids, and give them space to make their own mistakes. Sure, the carrots are too close together; they can be thinned with the thinnings going into a stock making bag.
