Summer is the perfect time to get your kids involved in gardening and teach them about the environment and healthy eating habits. There are so many organic plants that are easy to grow and maintain, which can make gardening a fun and rewarding experience for kids of all ages. In this post, we’ll introduce you to 3 kid-friendly plants for your organic garden.

1. Cherry Tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes are an excellent choice for a family-friendly plant in an organic garden. These tiny tomatoes are full of flavor and make a great healthy snack for kids. One of the main advantages of cherry tomatoes is that they can grow in various conditions. They can be grown in pots, hanging baskets, or even traditional garden beds, which makes them perfect for any garden size.

The seeds are easy to find in garden centers and online shops. Cherry tomato plants produce an abundance of tomatoes throughout the growing season, whic​h offers children a sense of pride in watching their plants continue to grow and bear fruit. By engaging children in the planting, caring, and harvesting process of cherry tomatoes, they can learn the value of organic gardening, develop a love for nature, and enjoy the fruitful experience of growing their healthy food.

2. Melons

Organic gardening can be an exciting activity for children, especially when growing fruits like watermelons and cantaloupes. Kids can plant the watermelon seeds, take care of the plants, and eagerly wait for the yellow flowers to turn into juicy and delicious fruits. Checking if they are ready for harvesting can be done by observing their dull rind color, dried tendril, or the hollow sound they produce when tapped.

In the same way, muskmelons, also known as cantaloupes, prosper during warm weather and strong vine growth. Children can plant cantaloupe seeds, take care of the plants, and witness the progression from delicate, sweet-smelling flowers to delectable and fragrant fruits. Cultivating watermelons and cantaloupes can teach kids about taking care of plants, the value of patience, and the gratification derived from organic gardening.
