One of the main reasons many home gardeners grow tomatoes is to make their own salsa! Truly there is no better salsa than one made with fresh-picked tomatoes!
 
Planting a salsa garden isn’t difficult. The biggest challenges lie in knowing when to plant and what to do when certain crops come to harvest earlier than others.
 
In today's episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I answer some of the most common questions when it comes to growing ingredients for salsa:

What tomatoes are best for salsa?
How do I know which onions to plant?
When do I start planting each ingredient?
What do I do when my tomatoes are ready but my peppers aren't?
When can I expect to harvest each crop?

Growing a salsa garden is fun and rewarding and with these tips you'll be on your way!
 
Also I mention in the podcast my free 28-page guide on How to Grow a Salsa Garden from planning to canning.

I answer the questions above and I also address some of the basics of canning. In addition, you'll receive a sample garden layout for a 4x8' salsa garden, a planning chart including recommendations on when to plant each crop, and recipes for both fresh eating and canning salsa.
 
Here are a few things some of the early readers had to say about it:
 

"This is a great resource that people are going to love. It looks very nice and is easy to read. The section on onions was extremely good. I like how the planting and harvesting chart can be easily adapted to my zone." -Mary

"I LOVE it! I learned several things, including that I want to plant garlic this fall and grow it for next year. I like the idea of growing my own. I just never thought to do it before. You inspired me!" -Kim

If you want to grow your own salsa garden, or even if you just want some information on growing a few of the ingredients, this beginner's guide has the basic information you'll want in an easy-to-read, colorful format.
