I received this book to review and I also got an extra copy for one of you to win. Woo hoo! I know summer is over but who cares. You can win this book and over the winter, plan all of the cool things you can do with a garden when planting season comes.
Before I got this book, my husband was the one who was more of a gardener. After I received this book, we went out to get supplies and started a garden of our own. We’re growing pumpkins, zucchini, green beans, corn, radishes, spinach, and basil. It’s all thanks to this book.
The authors have come up with the most amazing ideas such as making a pumpkin jungle, potato stamps, and creating fairy houses.
This book is packed with so many brilliant ideas. One of my favorites is planting specific gardens like a pizza or salad garden. The pizza garden is great because it shows the little hummingbird where some of the food is coming from.
Letting her go to the backyard to get some vegetables actually makes food more fascinating to her and drums up interest in the food we’re growing. Translation: She actually ate some fresh spinach…GASP!
Gardening Projects For Kids is full of endless possibilities for any kind of garden you can imagine.
There’s even a section on cooking tasks for every age and there are several other projects throughout the book like making lavender belly balm and using edible flowers for fancy and decorative ice cubes.
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me why you would like this book. If you’re like me and shy about leaving comments, let me know some of your favorite fruits and vegetables.
