Starting a Spring Garden

Well, next week is Spring Break for my kiddo and we are expecting beautiful warm weather so we will finally be starting a garden on our patio. I want to get the kids involved -- I think that it will be very valuable for them to see the work that goes into growing their food and I am hoping that they may be more willing to eat green things if they have an investment in them.

I found a great website that is dedicated to container gardening for beginner gardens. I'm very excited to get started. Do you have any great advice for a beginner? What vegetables would you recommend to get kiddos involved in?

I'll keep you posted. Maybe I'll have some pics to share.

Pumpkins are fun for kids, but you have to watch or they'll get away from you! (and they take over a garden quite handily)
Sunflowers are another easy grower.

I needed that link! We tried container gardening last year and it was a disaster. Maybe we'll try again this year. *sigh*
