It’s my favorite time of year! Spring has sprung and it’s time for our family to plant our annual garden. We love to grow fresh herbs, tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce and more, and my boys love to get involved. After all, what boy doesn’t like to play in the dirt?

We’re lucky enough to have a big backyard where we can plant, but even if you only have a small balcony or window where you can place a flower pot or two, there’s something you can grow! Check out this list below for a fun Mushroom farm, herbs you can grow in a can and more.

Whether you’re a gardening pro or looking to start your family’s first garden, there’s something on this list to get your kids excited about gardening.
