In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#316: How a 12 Year Old Turned Her Love for Gardening into a Passion In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Emma and Steven Biggs about how to get your kids into gardening and growing their own food.

Steven, author of "Grow Figs Where You Think You Can't", has collaborated with his daughter Emma, to write a gardening book aimed at getting children to have fun in the garden.

Emma will tell us how she at the age of 12, turns gardening into a fun everyday activity that has lead her to grow over 60 varieties of tomatoes, a number of mint plants and three and half pound tomato.

From there she'll share with us her tips to keep gardening fun for your kids, her journey into breeding tomatoes, and how simply playing in the dirt can be all your kids need to get them started.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
