Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here!
Do you love fresh pico de gallo, chili verde salsa or red salsa with tortilla chips? Then a Salsa Garden is perfect for you! We love enjoying any of these with our favorite Mexican dishes, and what’s better than being able to make it from fresh veggies from your own garden?! The taste of homegrown tomatoes vs. store-bought is huge…homegrown tomatoes are so much more delicious and flavorful—and it’s exciting to be able to say “I grew that!”
If you have never grown a garden in your yard, I suggest getting your soil tested. The cost is about $10 and can be done at USU in Logan, Utah. You can just mail in a sample and they can tell you the P and K levels, pH, salt, and lime content, which can help you find out what your soil might need before you spend money on your plants and take the time to plant and water them. Knowing these levels can help you avoid things like bottom rot and make sure you get the most out of your plants.
Avoid planting your veggies until the overnight temps are at least 50° or above. This is typically around May 15th in Utah. Watch your local forecast…our Utah weather is famous for being temperamental!
