Gardens for Science

The kids and I have had fun learning about plants, watching our vegetables grow. They grew faster than we thought. They are ready for planting, but we have no garden box outside, and we’ve had snow recently. So what do you suggest we do? When in Minnesota can I begin planting outside what I’ve already grown?
We have: Roma Tomatoes, Beans, Snap Peas, Basil and Parsley so far
Want to grow: cantaloupe, zucchini, strawberries, carrots, cucumbers, green peppers and lots of perennial flowers
My husband has been contemplating the whole idea of adding a garden, because while I want to do this with the kids – we end up doing most of the work ourselves, and is it worth it vs. buying it as we need it! Oh, and there are a lot of deer and squirrels around here.
What are your thoughts? Do I plant or toss?


  1. Keep them, they can get much bigger than that before planting. I never plant til Memorial Day weekend. It's only April and it can be pretty cold in May too.

    At least wait til Mother's day. then cover up if frost is expected.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Deer won't eat the tomatoes!
    Squirrels won't eat anything.

  2. Use Liquid Fence, apply several times a week!


Thank you for reading about our family. I look forwards to sharing ideas, joys and struggles. God Bless you in your journey!
