Green Gardening: Grow a Salsa Garden

| 7/29/2009 10:42:50 AM

I can’t avoid the signs any longer. I must grow a salsa garden. I can’t wait to look out my kitchen window and see the sun shining on my bright red Roma tomatoes, green onions, leafy cilantro and Serrano peppers that morph from green to orange as they mature.  

 This month, I’ve had three salsa garden omens:

1. I visited the Dole Institute of Politics in Lawrence, Kansas, this past week, and we were divided into groups and given an issue to present for our final project. Our topic was childhood obesity. Connor, a natural food advocate, told us all about how his family grows their own ingredients to make salsa. They can salsa for all their friends and family because everyone loves the fresh flavors.

2. I met Marci Francisco of the Kansas Senate. I asked her about organic farming initiatives in Kansas. I told her that although I’d love to buy organic, organic options are considerably more expensive. She asked if I had a garden, and I sheepishly shook my head no. I told her I’d love to start with something easy, like cilantro. Get this! She invited me to come over and get cilantro seeds from her house. How’s that for public service?

3. Natural Home just added a new gardening blog, and I want to get in on the fun.

Also, salsa is high in flavor but low in fat and calories. Without the sodium and preservatives found in store-bought salsa, my natural salsa will be a natural, healthy condiment.
