Great Picks for Impatient Gardeners

Kids love planting seeds, but waiting six months is too long for a payoff. Instead of planting mainstay crops, your children can try these bite-size, fast-growing mini-veggies:

"Tom Thumb" lettuce, "Thumbelina" carrots, mild "French Breakfast" radishes, sweet, tender "Little Ball" beets, "Sunburst Yellow Scallops" squash, "Epicure" potatoes, "Bambino" eggplant, and "Sugar Baby" watermelon.
