Where do your nutrients come from? Garden Nutrition

The garden is an alphabet of macro and micro nutrients, from vitamin A to zinc.  One of my favorite things to do as a parent is to use family dinner hour as quiz time.  My children can tell you which vegetables are high in beta carotene or low in vitamin C.  For parents who home school or use their living environment as a learning environment, I have shared a link to a chart that gives a visual breakdown of the nutrients of a harvest basket's worth of garden goodies.  Click the link below to view the chart!

Herb Spiral Zone 4-5
