Default Gardening with Kids

This year I want to try gardening with the kids (2yo-5yo). What low maintenance fruit/vegetable have you successfully grown in a shady (most of the day) area in the spring/summer? What months do you plant?

You may want to research shade gardens for your zone.

We do vegetable gardens every year, but they require full sun most of the day.

Any veggies that grows in ground will do well in shade.

Carrots would be great because you could wash them off and eat them outside. You can also start them in April and they can stay in the ground into the fall.

I did a garden last year for the first time and did tomato, carrots, potatoes, cucumber, watermelon and some berries. The berries didn't make it. I was late getting the watermelon did not ripe but the rest did great, better than I expected.

Going to try again this year.

Consider an hydroponics set up? I've heard great things about Moistenland and AreoGarden
