Anytime I hear the word salsa I can’t help but think of summer harvest. It’s been super exciting over the past few years of summer gardening to be able to add new vegetables from my harvest to the traditional summer salsa recipe. In this post, I share my favorite Summer Harvest Salsa!
Growing a Summer Harvest
Most people don’t realize you can grow a complete salsa party in your own home space. Corn, beans, onions, and garlic are a few produce that are easy to grow. As long as the growing space has up to six hours of sun you are most likely going to succeed. My friend Janet Cassidy and I talked about growing broom corn which grows the same as corn you can eat in a live stream presentation.
