I help run a school allotment. Does anyone have any suggestions for fruit and veg which is ready before the kids leave for Summer at the end of June. Most things we planted last year were ready when they were on holiday which was a pity. This year we did lots of salad leaves,radish, strawbs. They come back in Sept so they can harvest the leeks they planted, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I dont think planting anything from seed will get you results that soon, however if you could obtain a few pre-potted established plants then you may find what you are looking for.. As far as specifics go, it all depends on when they were started in the pots and the conditions they were grown in.

Best of luck..

Children on Allotments, Encouraging Kids to Grow Vegetables and Garden

Gardening and growing things is both educational and healthy for children. Better to see kids outdoors than watching TV. Once they know where the food comes from, they may even lose the taste for junk foods. Take your kids down to the allotment and watch them grow!

Thanks, yes I think we should get our act together and prepare a bit earlier next season. Smile
