Planting a Salsa Garden
Full Sun Project
This Victory Garden vegetable bed is approximately 8 feet long and 6 feet deep.
Prepare the soil before planting by amending the native soil at equal rations with Dr. Earth Home Grown Vegetable Garden Planting Mix.
Plant vegetables in rows for easy access for picking.
Use a tomato cage to support the tomatoes as they grow.
Enjoy fresh salsa straight from your garden this summer. Plant a veggie bed with tomatoes, peppers, onions, chives and cilantro. Experiment growing different types of tomatoes. If you like chunky salsa choose smaller tomatoes with less juice like Super Sweet 100, or Roma. For juicier salsa, plant large tomatoes like Better Boy or Celebrity. For more colorful salsa, choose a tomato that's a fun color like Yellow Pear, Cherokee Purple or Brandywine. Grow different types of peppers as well. Choose them based on how hot you like your salsa. Jalapenos are medium hot while Habaneros are quite hot.
