You will have to think ahead on
this one. Garlic is planted in the fall. To plant, break the bulb into
separate cloves and plant the cloves separately the fall before your
summer SALSA GARDEN.
Tomato plants should be planted in early summer,
well after the last predicted frost date. Buy an early and a
late variety for a long summer harvest.
Peppers, you can choose anything from Sweet Bell to
traditional Jalapeno plants. They can be planted at the same time you
plant your tomatoes.
Onions can be grown from seeds or from sets. Seeds
should be planted very early in the spring, as soon as
the soil thaws. Sets can be planted a bit later.
Cilantro, this herb provides a strong, spicy flavor to
salsa. You can sow cilantro seed on finely-raked soil after the last
frost date, or simply purchase a cilantro plant.
