Salsa Garden - Caged Passion
On Friday, it hailed here (a pounding hail) in the Avenues of Salt Lake City. Saturday and Sunday the weeds were pulled, soil double dug and turned. The tomatoes, tomatillos, chiles, onions and herbs were planted. And the cages set (I hope not to upset proponents of Free-Range Tomatoes). Today's rain nurtures the small plants and allows time for roots to take hold before temperatures soar in the high desert. Timing excellent.
After surveying the scene a neighbor asked if I'd planted my own Salsa Garden? I confirmed his assumption with a smile. There is method to every madness and this garden brings me closer to mine. Salsa!
