WW: Container Gardening with Kids (with linky)

We bought a bunch of plants this year, including tomatoes, strawberries, peas, some herbs and lastly the kids picked up a seed potato each from the local Farmer's Market to take part in the Potato Growing Contest. We picked up some free buckets from the ice cream stand and added these to our collection of containers on our balcony. This is the first year we have tried out vegetables so will see how it goes. Judging for the potato contest is September 22nd.

Here are some pictures of kids enjoying planting. 










I love to see comments and would love to see your Wordless Wednesday so link up below and I will stop by!

  4. It's so cool that you can grow that stuff on your balcony! I have very limited yard space, this would be great for me.

  5. Looks like lots of fun! My garden isn't near as big as I would like; I may have to look into doing some container planting too!

  7. Potatoes go great in pots! I don't have a suitable place for a veggie garden so I grow whatever I can in pots. Such a great activity to share with the kids!!

  9. That looks like a great idea, I would never have thought of just planting in containers like that. My son would love it.

  10. I love container gardening. I grew up in a house with a huge back yard, and we always had a nice vegetable garden. Apartment living has been a big adjustment for me, but containers help. Every Spring, I start itching to get my hands in the dirt!
