Spring is coming!! Get your kids excited to plant a garden that promises a yummy meal!
There are plenty of fun items to plant in your garden, and nothing is more satisfying than harvesting your vegetables and using them as ingredients in your home-cooked meal. But what if you could make an entire dish out of the contents of your garden? And better yet, what if you could turn it into a cooking lesson for your kids at the same time? Consider a salad garden, a salsa garden, or even a pizza garden this spring!
