Need something to do in the summer? Need a homemade side dish for picnics and BBQ.Β  I think making a salsa garden is the way to go and I’m here to tell you what you need to get started. Start your garden in the summer because tomatoes need to be in season or it just doesn’t work out well.

What to put in your garden and why..

Better Boy tomato- It tastes good and has disease resistance
Golden Jubilee tomato- It offers loads of big, golden-yellow fruits with a mild flavor. It has good disease resistance too.
Jalapeno’ pepper- Use them when they or green or wait till they are red. They offer a distinct mild flavor that is essential for great tasting salsa.
Garlic chives- easy to grow perennial that gives great flavor to salsas
Cilantro- Because they offer a zing to every dish you put it in πŸ™‚
Black Pearl’ pepper- hotter than Jalapenos- gives your salsa the spice it needs

These are just a few things you can put in your salsa but you gotta start somewhere!
