Last year we built a large garden box and started our first vegetable garden (yes, surprisingly some veggies do very well here in the Las Vegas desert). It was alot of fun and a great family project. And nothing tastes as good as something that you have grown yourself. We are currently coming into Spring, with temperatures in the 80's, and got our seeds in the ground a few weeks ago. I look forward to doing a book like this one from Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord with my kids. You can see more of her great book ideas here.
