Gardening with kids is… so much fun!

Back to school? Make it easier by spending time gardening with the kids!

HINGHAM, Mass. - BostonChron -- For many of us in the U.S., September means back to school for the kids, the end of vacations for families, and getting back into longer work days. What we don't hear about very often, however, is how magical the garden is in September, and how much fun we can still have with the bounty of fruits and vegetables yet to harvest, and those that are fast-growing and can still be planted!

It's true that our gardens are changing. We may not be planting or harvesting the same things we were two months ago. That's part of the joy of the seasons, though! In September we can plant many of those cool weather vegetables, like kale, Swiss chard, and lettuces. There's also still time in many regions to plant radishes and other quick-growing vegetables, or plant winter-growing root veggies that will pop up in the spring like garlic, spring onions, and carrots. In short, September is hardly the end of our gardening season!

And while September may not seem like the ideal time to start a garden, it's certainly the best time to start planning your next garden! Going with the whole back-to-school theme, we've dedicated this entire issue to gardening with kids! We have several projects in this issue that are ideal for gardening with children, from making personalized plant pots to helping them start their very own farm stand! But most importantly, we've created an entire video around creating a fast-growing and fun garden for kids of all ages, including the best plants to grow. Finally, we'll take a look at an updated version of a delicious classic recipe that's fun to make and a joy to eat.
