If you are a salsa connoisseur and ready to take your love of salsa to the next level, start by planting your own salsa garden.
There are several different ways to plant your salsa veggies depending on how much space and time you want to allot to your garden. In this blog, I’m going to plan out a small-scale salsa garden perfect for your Camden Apartment patio or balcony.

To start your patio garden you will need:
5 flower pots
Patio tomatoes seeds or sprouts
Garlic seeds or sprouts
Jalapenos seeds or sprouts
Cilantro seeds or sprouts
Green onions seeds or sprouts
Feel free to add other veggies and herbs as you see fit. You can jazz up your salsa ingredients with some items you may already have such as lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Plant your vegetable seeds/sprouts in the pots and place them on your patio or balcony in the sun. It typically takes 60+ days for these plants to mature depending on the season, soil, and the amount of sunlight the plants receive. Nurturing your garden requires patience and consistency but it will be so rewarding when it starts to produce beautiful vegetables!

To prepare the salsa, you can either chop by hand or use a food processor. You will need to gather these ingredients from your garden:
4 green onions
1 jalapeno (keep the seeds if you like your salsa spicy)
A small handful of cilantro
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon of lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop and mix these ingredients and you have wonderful home-grown salsa!
