Salsa Inspired Garden

Store bought salsa may be appetizing, but nothing beats a homegrown and freshly made jar of salsa. It is a healthier choice, it tastes better, and it can create a fun activity for you and your family. 

  1. Decide what to plant for your salsa. If you aren’t sure, find a recipe with delicious ingredients. The common ingredients include tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, and herbs. 
  2. Choose the site location. Make sure the area has good soil quality and receives at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. 
  3. Determine the size of your plot. Sometimes it is better to start small until you get the hang of things. Make sure the plot is small enough so you have access to all the plants. 
  4. Till up the grass and remove any debris or dirt clumps. 
  5. Amend your soil with an Enriched Garden Soil preferably one that includes a fertilizer. Otherwise, add a Schultz® fertilizer specially formulated for the plants. 
  6. For seeds, plant using the instructions from the packaging. For plants, be sure to bury them as deep as they were in the container. 
  7. Water your plants thoroughly right after planting. 
  8. Apply a thin layer of mulch in order to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. 
  9. Throughout the growing season, continue to feed your garden with a Plant Food. Be sure to follow the packaging instructions. 
  10. Make sure to care for each plant based on its specific needs. Some may require more watering and fertilizer as well as the difference in harvesting periods. 
  11. Salsa Gardens can be planted in ground, in containers, or in a raised-bed garden. Get creative and don’t be afraid to experiment. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy!
