A Little Green Thumb – Gardening With A Toddler

By Emily |

Checking out our squash that are taking over the garden!

I am relatively new to gardening, but I have loved sharing my garden with my kids this summer!  They have been a part of pretty much every step – from planting the seeds, to watering and watching the seedlings sprout and grow, to harvesting and then enjoying the bounty of fresh vegetables.

Involving your toddler in gardening is a great way to teach them all about food – where it comes from and how it’s grown, and encourage them to try new veggies that they may otherwise be reluctant to eat. 

We grow an organic garden, we have not used any chemical fertilizers or pesticides on our garden, so we know that everything we grow is healthy and safe, our veggies can be eaten right off the vine, and our children can safely join us in helping with the garden.

Here’s how my son and I enjoy gardening together.

Mama and Bren

I love to take my kids out in the garden with me and let them see how the plants grow and make veggies that we then get to pick and eat!

Does your toddler like to help with gardening or other outdoor projects?
