Vegetable Gardening Project
Grow your own veggies! Discover how to plant, water, fertilize and manage weeds, insects and diseases in your vegetable garden. Learn how plants respond to light, make a worm box, freeze vegetables, make a compost, test and improve soil, and cross-pollinate flowers. Explore plant genetics, hydroponics and careers.
