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.
