Veggie Garden Maker
How does your garden grow?
Practice growing vegetables with children -- not only do they get their hands dirty and have fun doing it, but it's an exercise in understanding where our food comes from.
This prettily packaged set has everything you need to grow a classic collection of organic vegetables. The seeds (rouge d'hiver lettuce, french breakfast radish, chantenay carrot, marmande tomato, bunching onion, mammoth melting snow pea, edible flower nasturtium, and haricot vert maxibel bean) were chosen because they're easy to grow, versatile in the kitchen, and beautifully ornamental. You can grow them in containers or a garden plot -- included are 8 organic seed varieties, a recycled steel case, garden stakes, a pencil, and instructions.
