Chef Jeff's KidsIf you love to play in the dirt and grow nutritious foods, then check out the new Chef Jeff Kid’s Collection.  Simply plant these easy-to-grow varieties in rich, well-drained soil (a fancy word for dirt) and watch them grow! But don’t forget, they need plenty of fresh air and water just like you.

Sherry the BerryHi, I’m Sherry the Strawberry!  Plant me in a large pot on your patio or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your own backyard space.   I’m a sweet, red ripe strawberry that is perfect in smoothies, on salads, or eaten whole!  I have more vitamin C than citrus fruits and am often used on pancakes or waffles.  Eating a nutritious everbearing strawberry, like me, just tastes better when you grow it yourself and share it with others!  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun 12” apart)
Peter the PumpkinHi, I’m Peter the Pumpkin!  Plant me by myself or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.  I need a lot of space to stretch my vines because I grow in hills 3 to 6 feet apart and in rows 10 to 15 feet apart.  I’m a large, orange pumpkin with ridged flesh that is perfect for carving Jack-o-lanterns!  Planting your own Halloween pumpkin, like me, is more fun when you grow it yourself!  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun, 115 average days to maturity, 25 pound average)
Gordy the GourdHi, I’m Gordy the Gourd!  Plant me by myself or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.  It is best to plant me in hills or on fences and trellises as my vines can reach 30 feet in length.  It may take as long as 6 months for my gourds to dry to create your very own birdhouse; my gourds will be ready when I am light weight and you can hear my seeds inside rattle when I’m shaken.  Planting your own birdhouse gourd, like me, is more fun when you grow it yourself!  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun, 150-180 average days to maturity, 9-10” size gourds)
Beanzy the BeanHi, I’m Beanzy the Bean! Plant me in a large pot on your patio or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I’m a pole bean that has best flavor when picked as young, 7 to 8 inch pods and I will need to climb on a 5 to 6 foot pole, trellis, or string for support.  I can be eaten crunchy and fresh from the garden or cooked as a side dish for dinner.  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun 4” apart, 65 average days to maturity)
Tommy the TomatoHi, I’m Tommy the Tomato!  Plant me in a large pot on your patio or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I’m a large, red beefsteak tomato that is perfect on hamburgers or BLT sandwiches.  I’m often used in pizza and pasta sauce or on salads and tacos.  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  Indeterminate.   Disease Resistance: VFT & crack resistant. (Plant in full sun 2-3 feet apart, 78 average days to maturity)
Wally the WatermelonHi, I’m Wally the Watermelon!  Plant me by myself or collect and plant all my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I need a lot of space to stretch my vines because I grow in mounds of 3 plants, allowing 1 foot between each plant.  I’m green with darker green stripes and red, sweet flesh that is perfect for fruit salads or eating in large slices until the delicious, sweet juice drips down your chin!  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun, 85 average days to maturity, 25 pound melons)
Luke the CukeHi, I’m Luke the Cuke! Plant me in a large pot on your patio or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I’m a crisp cucumber that is perfect for slicing on salads or on bread for the best cucumber sandwiches you’ve ever tasted.  Harvest my cucumbers at 6 to 8 inches or smaller for best flavor.  (Plant in full sun 18-24” apart, 55-60 average days to maturity)
Kernel CobbHi, I’m Kernel Cobb!  Plant me by myself or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I’m most often eaten as corn on the cob with butter and salt, but you can try butter and taco seasoning for a twist!  I have delicious yellow and white kernels and cobs that average 8” in length.  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  (Plant in full sun 12-18” apart, 82 average days to maturity)
Sunny Sweet Cherry TomatoHi, I’m Sunny Sweet the Cherry Tomato! Plant me in a large pot on your apartment patio or collect and plant all of my vegetable friends in your very own garden space.   I am told I’m as sweet as eating a piece of candy and can be eaten right from the garden as a summer snack.  I’m also used fresh on salads or cooked in pastas and sauces.  Eating a nutritious cherry tomato, like me, just tastes better when you grow it yourself!  Feed me with a liquid or slow release fertilizer.  Indeterminate.   Disease Resistance: VF.  (Plant in full sun 2-3 feet apart, 62-67 average days to maturity)
