Rainbow Vegetable Garden Giveaway from Burpee


Nutritionists tell us that a great way to have a well-rounded diet is to include all the colors of the rainbow in our diet. (No, ketchup doesn’t count for red.) But, as you browse the produce aisle, try to include all the different hues and you’ve upped the substance in your family’s diet. You know that pretty colors can entice many a picky eater to try a new food.

Another great way to encourage good eaters is to teach your peeps to garden. Our kids have always loved to plant seeds and seedlings, water the garden, and check on the harvest. And each one will at least try whatever it is we’re growing.

Burpee has developed a rainbow vegetable garden that you can grow at home with your children. What a fantastic idea!

The Rainbow Vegetable Garden includes: 9 PLANTS (1 of each)
Eggplants: Purple Rain and Crescent Moon
Peppers: The Godfather, Orange Belle II and Red Delicious
Tomatoes:Burpee’s Big Boy, Sun Gold, BushSteak and Sweet Tangerine

In this week’s giveaway, THREE LifeasMOM readers will each receive a Rainbow Vegetable Garden. How fun is that?!

Winners will have plants shipped straight to their doors at the proper planting time for their area — except for those living in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Nevada, Georgia, and Idaho. Any winners in those states will receive Burpee gift certificates. Contest will be open until Sunday, March 28 at 8 pm PST. Winners to be chosen at random.

To enter? Simply leave a comment telling us your favorite vegetable. Please make sure that you leave an email address so that I can contact you if you win.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Kimberly (whiteiris717@), Nicole (nicolemartin0707@), and Kim in AZ (kanddbk@). Send me your snail mail, and I’ll get your prize shipped out. Thanks for playing everyone!

  77. Current favorite veggie are (mild) peppers!!
    Last year this time, my boyfriend and I turned our nose up at any vegetable raw or even cooked. You would have thought we were a bunch of 8 year olds sitting at the dinner table… Fast forward through last year to the present, we made a 8’X10′ garden plot in our yard last year which was super hard work, but the reward was so worth it. We know try to incorporate fresh veggies (and lots of colors) into each of our dinners! Unfortunately we’ve moved to a smaller place, but we’re talking about participating in our local CSA so we can still have the wonderful rewards of fresh veggies!!!! (I never thought those words would come out of my mouth…)

  78. There is nothing better than veggies from the garden in the summer, but I think I look forward to summer squash the most!

  79. Debbie in PA says:

    Nailed to the wall, I guess I’d say green beans b/c I can eat them raw or cooked with nothing at all or with extras like butter and walnuts. yum. :)

  103. gotta be the loofah gourd! you can eat them (tasty) OR dry them after they mature and have your own loofah dish scrubbers etc! makes a great gift too!

  104. Lea Stormhammer says:

    Oh my – let’s see – fresh green beans are probably it. Though, I do like squash and sweet peppers too! Can I have more than one favorite? :)

    My kids would LOVE this! Especially the tomatoes – my son watches the tomatoes daily and would eat all of them – fresh off the vine – if I would let him get away with it!

  165. It’s so hard to choose a favorite vegetable. I really like so many. But if I were to look at it based on what I eat the most of, it would be a tie between tomatoes & potatoes (ignoring the fruit/veggie debate about the tomato).

    Green beans

  240. My favorite veggie is any kind of pepper! I didn’t even try them until I was in college and I LOVE them! It would be great to start a little garden in our home on the military base!

  241. It’s almost as hard to pick a favorite veggie as it is to pick a favorite fruit!!! But I love green beans…string beans to be exact! Cucumbers, carrots, and broccoli are right up there too! Thanks for the giveaway! We built a new home last spring and can’t wait to put in grass seed, flower and vegatable gardens as soon as it warms up a bit!

  242. Jennifer says:

    LOVE fresh from the garden tomatoes.

  243. my fav veggie would have to be the cherry tomato. Simply because my 2 year old pops them like candy, and I can’t wait to grow a bunch of tomato plants with him this summer!

  244. I love veggies of all kinds, don’t know that I could pick just one. Tomatoes (does that count since they are a fruit? LOL) are probably my absolute favorite though…fresh off the vine, in sauces, on salad, with some fresh mozz and basil..yum!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  245. Yes, tomato may technically be a fruit, but it’s the favorite around here. My 4 year old loves to pull tomatoes from the vine in the garden and eat them. What a great giveaway.

  246. Stephanie says:

    This sounds so yummy! My favorite veggie is Eggplant! :-)

  247. We absolutely love Red Bell Peppers…. We just love the flavor that they give to any dish….

  248. My favorite vegetable is zucchini! I love to eat it raw, grill it, mix it in baked goods – the possibilities are endless!

  249. I love okra but it must be fried!

  250. I LOVE home grown tomatoes. My favorite type are the ones that are just the right size for slicing on a sandwich. They just don’t compare to what you buy in the store. The tomato growing season just isn’t long enough!!

  251. Corn all the way!

  252. Jennifer says:

    Definitely tomato. I am trying to grow some from seed this year. I hope they work, they are already looking very leggy. I don’t think you can have enough tomatos in the summer. Yum. Can’t wait!

  253. Ellen C. says:

    I love broccoli. Thanks for the chance.

  254. sugar snap peas

  255. Most fav veggie has to be a cucumber. Especially when it starts to get hot outside.

  256. Sunnie in NC says:

    Definitely Asparagus…love love love it!!
    Sunnie

  257. My fave veggies would be tomatoes and cucumbers. My 4 yr old loves carrots, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and lots of fruit (I know, not a vegetable). It would be awesome for me and him to grow a vegetable garden together! He would love it.

  258. Hmm… it’s a tie between broccoli, lettuce, carrots, and green beans! Awesome giveaway!!

  259. where do I start?!?! Eggplant, garden-fresh tomatoes and cukes, asparagus, spinach. :) so many!

  260. Fantastic Giveaway! Favorite Veggie, that is a tough one. I’d say probably a pepper of some sort, either green, red, yellow or orange. But a close second would have to be broccoli or maybe cauliflower. :)

  261. Lindsay T. says:

    Any kind of hot pepper. I love to add them to my cooking!

  262. I love tomatoes right off the vine. Yummy…tastes like summer!

  263. Thanks for the great giveaway! A fave veggie is hard to decide…but my favorite veggie that we grow is probably snow peas.

  264. I LOVE veggies! AND, I have been working hard in my little garden! My very favorite veggie has to be artichokes. So delicious!

  265. Oh, tomatoes, for sure, especially when they’re fresh from the garden. Yummmm . . .

  266. My favorite has to be peas! Or corn. Or maybe green beans. Or … actually, I can’t decide!

  267. My favorite vegetable is carrots, but my kids’ favorite vegetable are green beans.

  268. Jen Sellers says:

    My favorite vegetable has to be a fresh, homegrown, ripe, juicy tomato.

  269. My favorite vegetables are zucchini…so versatile!!!!

  270. Tough question – I love so many veggies! If I had to pick a favorite – it would probably be green beans or corn on the cob. Great Giveaway!

  271. Amy Auger says:

    I am a veggie fanatic. I love all of them, but my favorite would probably be broccoli!!

    auger715@yahoo.com

  272. I love squash, it is so easy to grow and amazing to watch it go from itty bitty to picking ready in a few days.

  273. Definitely artichokes, but especially when they’re super fresh!

  274. I just found your blog and have enjoyed reading it. Thank you! My favorite veggies are sugar snap peas. They are great right out of the garden.

  275. Butternut Squash is our favorite, but fresh green beans come in a close second. Well, there’s also corn…

  276. I really like fresh picked sugar snap peas, but I’ll settle for frozen green beans. ;)

  277. Elizabeth says:

    My favorite veggie is definitely the tomato! It’s so versatile!

  278. My favorite vegetable is okra… mmmm.

  279. Sweet Red Peppers for sure! Nothing can beat those.

  280. Daryl Ann says:

    I love spinach most of all, but all veggies are yummy too!

  281. sugar snap peas…so easy to grow and my daughter can even help pick them! good raw, cooked, we even freeze the surplus to have in the winter…can’t wait till they are ready this summer.

  282. Laurie L says:

    My favorite is spinach. I can eat it like salad greens, on a burger or sandwich in place of lettuce, you name it. I LOVE the stuff!

  283. It’s hard to pick just one. Hmmmm. I guess my favorite vegie would be peas.

  284. I love peppers, especially red & yellow!!

  285. I love homegrown tomatoes — they are so amazing and superior to the storebought ones. Red peppers are pretty fantastic too!

  286. I happen to love all Burpee products and this is great! My favorite veggie would be the bell pepper ( I know they say fruit because it has seeds). They are so versatile. I can make stuffed bell peppers or mix it in everything!!

  287. There’s nothing better than a homegrown tomato!

  288. Definitely fresh from the garden tomatoes!

  289. Jonalynn says:

    Cucumbers!! and tomatoes(but they aren’t a veggie, I know)

  290. Oh Oh, pick me! We love cucumbers, oh, and broccoli, and green beans, and radishes, and eggplant… oh and so many more :)

  291. I LOVE brocolli, and really almost all other veggies!

  292. Originally, I would have said tomato because they are so versatile, & you can do so much w/ the different varieties… enjoy them whole, garnish a salad, slice ‘em up & dip in a sweet sauce, put on a favorite sandwich, cook them up in a sauce, mix ‘em in a pasta salad… the list goes on, but like your previous commenter you’re right it’s not technically a vegetable. So, the next one that pops in my head is Edamame (Soy beans)… we love those little guys in our house… in fact my 4 yr. old can gobble down an entire bowl on her own – it’s the de-shelling thanks fun to her. Mmm… I’m wishing I had some now. Boil ‘em up sprinkle on some sea salt & you’ve got a deelish appetizer/snack!

    elianasmom@msn.com

  293. I like a lot of different veggies, but my favorite is probably a big, juicy red tomato, hot from the garden, sliced with salt sprinkled on it! YummY!

  294. My fav has got to be summer squash. Throw a little onion in the pot with it and you can’t go wrong. Just wish anyone else in my house would eat it. I’m working on them though.

  295. Artichokes!

  296. Carrots and tomatoes are tied!

  297. Hmmmm, I have to pick one? I would say colored peppers. There is nothing like that sweet, crunchy delisiousness….mmmmm.

  298. Alex Hall says:

    Oh my, to pick a favorite……I would have to go with tomatoes, if they count. :)

  299. well, it’s really a fruit, but Tomatoes..then onions & peppers

  300. MMmmmm! My favorite vegetable is zucchini squash. They are so yummy. I was going to say that tomatoes were my favorite but they’re a fruit, right? Theres nothing like fresh veggies from the garden. My son (4) was just asking the other day if we could grow some PICKLES!! LOL!

  301. My families favorite vegetable would have to be peppers (from jalapeno to bell) and tomatoes…we make our own spicy salsa. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!!

  302. Stephanie says:

    I love red peppers!

  303. I love a fresh-from-the-garden tomato…but, wait, is that a fruit? To avoid that endless debate, I’ll list my other favorite: green beans.

  304. Do I have to pick only one? I can only narrow it down to tomatoes, green beans, and squash.

  305. Our favorite fresh veggie is a home grown tomato.

  306. Corn!!!!! but cucumbers come in a close second.

  307. Beets, tomatoes and red peppers. My grandparents had a giant garden when I was growing up, so I was lucky enough to be exposed to lots of good vegetables before I was old enough to turn my nose up at them. This year my goal is to try to do that for my 3 year old that’s getting a little picky by growing a variety of things in our garden. She’s usually game to try what she’s worked so hard to grow!

  308. My new favorite is squash, so yummy drizzled with olive oil and roasted!!!

  309. Mallory Cook says:

    My favorite veggie is lettuce! I use tons of lettuce on everything. Also cucumbers :)

  310. Jessica Sharp says:

    My daughter(2.5) absolutely loves veggies! My favorite has to be a yummy home grown tomatoe, but I try and use everything once… even the different ones in ethnic markets! My daughter asks for Broccoli every night for dinner lol … I don’t love brocolli cooked so I don’t know where she got it from! Oh and yummy asparagus has been on seasonal sales lately and I pull out the george foreman to grill it for a yummy summer taste!

  311. our favorite veggie is a tomato. they are good on salads, pizza, tacos, etc. they are wonderful for making yummy spaghetti sauce and soups. i get hungry just thinking about it.

  312. I love green beans from the garden!

  313. Asparagus has to be my favorite! Broccoli is a close second… this is a great give away!!

  314. That’s hard to narrow down, but I would have to say carrots! There is just so many ways you can work carrots into a meal, even sneaking it into dessert!!

  315. Heather ODonnell says:

    I fell in love with eggplant last year and I am really looking forward to this fall when it is fresh and abundant again.

  327. I love broccoli. And peppers. Oh and carrots. How about potatoes. And corn. (Is that a vegetable? I guess it is a grain!)

  329. Asparagus!!!! Then tomatoes. Wait. Maybe tomatoes then asparagus. Heck, both!

  330. I love asparagus. Steamed with a little olive oil. Yum!

  331. This would come in handy since my husband is making his wishlist with his Burpee catalog… Our family loves Broccoli! I get lots of comments from people saying, I can’t believe your kids will eat that, but they love it! We have a lot of other favorites also.

  332. I think peas are probably my favorite veggie.

  333. I love fresh tomatoes!

  334. I love, love, love sungold tomatoes. I eat them like candy right off the plant.

  344. Peppers are the biggest thing at our house – the more colors the better!

  345. I LOVE zucchini! It’s my all time favorite! :)

  346. My favorite vegetable would be artichokes. Thanks to Burpee seeds, I harvested 100 of them last year!

    I live in Nevada, and I’ve already ordered from Burpee for this year’s garden, but a gift certificate for next year’s garden would be awesome!

  347. My favorite vegetable is kale. Yum!

  348. Kim in AZ says:

    My favorite veggie (at the moment) is the red bell pepper. 4 out of 5 of my kiddos gobble these up anytime. Cucumbers are a close second, and celery is a yummy raw addition too! :) We actually cleaned up our garden last night to get ready for some spring planting! Yeah!

  433. I love broccoli.

  434. I LOVE brussels sprouts! I just discovered this last year when I planted them for the first time because the purple ones are SOOO pretty! I didn’t think I’d eat very many because I have never liked them. But surprise, I LOVE them!!

  438. Betsy Negley says:

    My favorite vegetable is parsnips. I love to slice and steam them and then serve them with a little butter, salt and pepper. Unfortunately, here in Florida, they are very expensive to buy and my “garden” is still a dream in my head. If I win, I can get it started!

  439. My favorite is Broccoflower!!! But I have to say it was almost impossible to choose. I LOVE vegetables!!!

  440. I love salads, which I guess is not one vegetable, but usually many.

    My picky 4-year-old chanted to me today “carrots are the best vegetable in the world!” Since he’ll likely change his mind tomorrow, I thought I’d better write that one down!

  441. Hello,

    This is Kristin from Burpee. I just wanted to thank everyone for your enthusiasm. I hope the Rainbow Garden idea inspired you. Best of luck with your gardens this year!

    Kristin :)

  442. I’m a lover of pretty much all produce… But asparagus is a definite favorite. Thanks!

  443. Rochelle says:

    I love tomatoes from the garden. I love it when you can eat a tomato that’s warm from the sun!

  444. My family loves roasted kale–it’s almost like eating potato chips, except it is soooo much healthier!

  445. Favorite? That’s hard to decide….. corn on the cob, garden ripe tomatoes, asparagus, butternut squash, or juicy watermelon. I just love gardening. Everything tastes better from your own garden .

  446. Tomatoes!

  447. Even though it’s technically a fruit, my favorite veggie is tomato! ESPECIALLY a fresh from the garden tomato on a sandwich with mayo and a little salt. Yum!

  448. My favorite vegetable? Sugar Snap Peas! Any thing with the word “sugar” in it has to taste good, right?

  449. Garden tomatoes are the best! You can’t find store bought ones that compare! :)

  450. definitely corn!

  451. Okra!!!!

  452. I love most veggies, but my favorite is artichoke.

  453. Stephanie says:

    Would have to say Eggplant! You can do so much with them!

  454. my favorite vegetable is asparagus!

  455. Tomatoes being a fruit and not a vegetable I will have to say I absolutely LOVE artichokes (but is it a veggie or a flower? hmmm) if not the other one I could eat everyday is asparagus!
