Nurturing a love for gardening in your child can easily be done by planting a pizza garden with your child. And this can be done right in containers, for those with limited space to plant vegetable beds.
Planting a pizza garden can be fun, and your child will love to water the garden, and wait for the garden to grow the tomatoes, peppers and herbs that can be used for a special homegrown pizza night!
To plant a pizza garden, you can grow the plants and herbs from scratch, or you can purchase seedlings for a perfect start. These plants can be easily grown in pots on a patio or in a window, or can be grown in a garden plot.
Here are some plant suggestions for growing your pizza garden:
- roma tomatoes
- regular tomatoes
- green peppers
- red peppers
- hot peppers
All of these plants grow very easily, needing very little work other than regular watering and perhaps staking.
Once your pizza garden has finished growing, you and your child can eat the fruits of your labor!
