Our Garden & Cubit's Seeds Giveaway

For the past few years, we have had a small children's garden where we have grown carrots and zucchini. This year we are changing things up a bit by growing a green bean / zucchini tee-pee in our yard (more about that later), yellow peppers in containers, and carrots in our children's garden.  These carrots will not simply be orange, but will be a colorful mix of white, yellow, orange, red, and purple.  I purchased our carrot and pepper seeds from Cubit's, a wonderful etsy shop that offers organic, rare, and heirloom seeds. (See the Cubit's Organic Living blog here.)

Want to grow your own colorful carrots? Laura and Ryan, Cubit's owners, have offered one of my readers a package of Colorful Carrot Mix Organic Heirloom Seeds, a 200+ count of organic white, yellow, orange, red & purple carrot seeds. To enter, leave a comment about the Cubit's shop or gardening with children.  We will draw the name of the winner on Tuesday evening.

  1. This sounds so wonderful. Last spring we were just moving into our house so I didn't grow a garden that year and I told myself I would have a nice one this year but I've had quite a late start. I haven't done a thing yet. I love the idea of a children's garden. The boys have one... only it's just a patch of dirt on the side of the house they like to dig in and make mud pies right now. ;)

  2. We are planting a garden this year too! My son is enjoying watering everything.

  3. We have been looking for more ways to include the children in our Community Garden.This year they painted rocks to serve as crop markers for our veggies planted from seed! I love the multi colored carrots! They would go perfect with our Easter Egg Radishes and Rainbow Chard!
