Kids Spaghetti Sauce Garden

Messy face

Kids love spaghetti sauce, and they get excited to plant a garden with a goal to make their own spaghetti sauce. Kids can make a garden plan with tomatoes in the back with a tomato cage around each plant. In the United States more tomatoes are grown in backyard gardens, pots, and patios than any other food. Kids like them in salads, sandwiches, pizzas, salsa, and spaghetti sauce. Heirloom tomatoes come from old seeds, handed down from one generation to the next, and they produce the most delicious tomatoes. Kids can ask their local Master Gardeners at the Organic Garden Club or Community Garden for the best seeds for their area. Kids can prepare a raised garden bed four feet square or gather a group of large pots in a sunny spot. Organic starter plants are available at the nursery in the spring. Mulch around the tomato plants with compost and add garlic and red onions where they will get some shade. Kids can add red and green peppers and herbs to season their spaghetti sauce like basil, thyme, sage, oregano, parsley, rosemary and edge the garden with marigolds to attract beneficial insects.
