The salsa garden was actually Andy’s genius! We heart salsa and make this 5 ingredient salsa recipe often.
So, here’s what happened… we bought a house! And now we have a yard, and this weird little raised bed that was overgrown with what I thought were weeds. I instgram-ed a this picture and found out that the tall mini tree looking things are actually lilies, so I saved those suckers. But, everything else I ripped out. The only seeds I could find in our boxes were cilantro seeds, so I planted those. Here’s the jungle on move in day…
See, I saved the lilies! I did my first transplant. I’ll keep ya updated.
I just wanted a few herbs and maybe some lettuce when Andy suggested we have a salsa garden… sold! We took a little trip to Home Depot where they had all herb and veggie plants on sale for $2 and I got 3 tomato plants and 2 jalapeño plants for $10. Added them to my already planted cilantro seeds, and bam… we’ve got a salsa garden! Pretty dang excited about that.
And remember how I won a Pennington Smart Feed at BlissDom? Well, I’m putting it to good use today! Pennington launched a new product called the Pennington Smart Feed Sprayer System. It makes fertilizing easy peasy! I tested out the tomato and veggie tablets on my salsa garden and then gave the lilies some flower and bloom love.
Even I can handle this kind of fertilizing. The adjustable sprayer easily attaches to a standard garden hose and ensures proper nutrition for your little plants.
Unscrew the spray canister and stick a tablet in the holder and spray. Seriously, easy.
Look at that spray ; ) I’m going to be a salsa making fool in no time!
And there are my happy little tomatoes, fertilized, and ready to grow big!
Have you ever made a garden specific to a recipe? How about a hummus garden? Garbanzo beans, garlic, onions? That could be fun! Have you used the new Pennington Smart Spray System?

I am a HUGE salsa fan! Maybe it’s my Texas roots ; ) I want to make a garden specifically so I can make a salad, lol. This pregnancy I have craved and craved salad. But we’ll see if I get in my new house in time to plant a garden here. Wisconsin has like the shortest growing season EVER, you can’t plant until June 1st. I’m used to planting practically year round in Houston!

I make stuffed peppers with my garden peppers
Kris Reynolds says
Salsa and salads using homegrown ingredients are the best.
My favorite recipe would have to be fruit salsa. Contrary to it’s name, it also includes tomatoes and onions (along with cantaloupe and apples).
