Ultimate Salsa Garden
When it's warmer, add color to your harvest and flavor to your table with a fiesta of peppers and tomatoes.
Variety: The Spice of Salsa
Try growing a number of different tomato and pepper varieties to lend your salsa the myriad of colors and flavors upon which distinctive salsa depends. Planting a wide variety and staggering planting in stages extends your harvest and helps keep pest problems to a minimum.
If you already have a good crop of tomatoes and peppers, they should continue to produce fruit into early fall. Live in the mid-to-lower South? This is the perfect time to plant small tomato and pepper plants. It's too late to replant if you live in more northern planting zones, but don't miss out on all of the fresh tomatoes and peppers sold at farmers' markets in late summer. They are at the peak of the growing season and will be bursting with flavor!
