Hi, I’m Teca Thompson, Farm to Table chef. Today, I’m going to talk to teach you how to plant a salsa garden. Salsa is very subjective, so basically you can take any of your favorite ingredients, as long as it’s seasonal to the time your year you’re dealing with, and plant them in a similar area, and make a salsa garden. So I already have jalapeno pepper plants right here. And, I also behind me have a Roma tomato plant. So, I’ve chosen four ingredients: The two existing ingredients, which are jalapenos and tomatoes, I also have a baby onion that I’ve been growing from seed, and cilantro which I’ve been growing from seed. So, I’m going to choose two spots for them, making sure that they’re going to have enough room to grow with the tomato and jalapeno peppers. So, we’re going to dig a hole roughly the size of the pot that it’s already in. We’re going just to take it out of its pot, transplant it right here in the ground, tamping it down. So, the onion being about two feet away from the peppers and tomato will give it plenty of room and its own sunlight to grow. And, I’ll do the same with my cilantro. We’re going to dig a hole for the cilantro at about a foot to a foot and a half away from the onion. We’re going to place it in the ground right here, making sure it’s tamped in. Always a good idea after you freshly plant something to give it a sprinkle of water, and then keep it hydrated as it grows and gets bigger. So, that is how to plant a salsa garden. Remember that whatever your favorite ingredients for salsa is, and as long as it’s seasonal and able to grow in your area, that’s what can make a salsa garden. I’m Teca Thompson, thank you for watching.
