Plant a kid-friendly vegetable or flower garden
Do you remember the joy of being a kid? The wonder of everything, large and small? Just imagine how the littles in your life will feel digging into the dirt and harvesting a rainbow carrot, or picking a cherry tomato off the vine and plopping it right into their mouth? These garden experiences are sure to be among the most treasured memories for you and your child.
At Eden Brothers, We know how important childhood development is, and we know that you can never start too early when teaching healthy habits. We're passionate about connecting people to healthy food, and food that they can grow themselves—and that's why we've pulled together some of our best-tasting vegetables and easy-to-grow flowers into a special collection tailored to kids—young and old alike.
The many benefits of gardening with children
It's been factually proven that children who grow their own vegetables are significantly more likely to eat vegetables than kids who don't. Worried about raising a picky eater? Give them their own patch in the garden and see what a difference it makes.Growing flowers with children has its benefits, too. Flowers are known to promote general well-being and mental health, so let your kids look at flowers, and let them pick the flowers, too. Flowers play an important environmental role in the world—why not plant a pollinator patch with your child and have a discussion on why bees and insects are so important?
Grow the best vegetables that kids love
We all have different taste buds and palates but set your kid up for success by helping them raise food that they already know they love. Pea seeds, like Oregon Sugar Pod II, are easy for small hands to plant, and the peas themselves are fun to pick!
Cucumbers are another favorite among adults and children alike. These fast-growing vegetables produce the most refreshing fruits that can be enjoyed directly in the garden. Consider growing the Boston Pickling variety and learn how to make pickles!
Carrots might be one of the most rewarding vegetables to harvest—such tiny seeds produce the sweetest roots. Plant the Rainbow Blend mic and watch the astonishment on your child's face when he or she pulls that first long purple carrot out of the ground.
You're well aware by now that vegetables aren't supposed to be bland—why not start instilling a lesson for your children in food security and responsibility? These kid-friendly vegetables have been handpicked for their ease of growing and their delicious tastes.
Eden Brothers' seeds are safe and always non-GMO
