How Does Sauce Grow?

tomatoesStart with fresh tomatoes

Tomatoes are green when they start to grow. We pick them when they are red and plump.

garlicThen add garlic

The part we eat, the bulb, is underground. The long, thin leaves sprout from the ground. When the leaves turn brown, it's time to dig up the garlic.

And some herbs

Basil, thyme, and oregano leaves—fresh or dried—add flavor and a little color to the sauce. When the plants start flowering, or before, you can pick the leaves.
