Onions and garlic are great for growing at home. They don’t take up a lot of space in the garden but pack a major flavor punch.
Plant your garlic in the fall or early spring with your onions just after the soil becomes workable and nights stay above 20 degrees. These will be ready to harvest late summer to early fall when the greens begin to brown and die off.
Green onions take less time to grow and are a great option to grow for early batches of fresh salsa.
Growing your own peppers is a great way to add a unique flavor to your salsa. The varieties of papers you can purchase at the grocery store or farmers market are limited compared to what you can grow in your own garden.
Opt to try something new and unique for your salsa garden. Plant a few different kinds of peppers to give yourself more options.
Growing your own herbs for your salsa is a great way to have the freshest flavor.
Cilantro and parsley are both great options for growing in your garden to make fresh homemade salsa. Grow your own cilantro or parsley in your herb garden or near your tomatoes.
You could even try other herbs in your salsa. Have fun when looking for varieties for your salsa garden.
Have fun and experiment with flavors!
