Forget jarred salsas. It doesn’t take much room to grow your own fresh ingredients for spicy sweet homemade salsa. All you need are four containers (sizes indicate pot diameters): one 24”, two 18”, and one 14”. Just follow the planting plan below, making sure to provide support at planting for the tomato and pepper plants. Feel free to mix things up, too, planting the kinds of tomato, peppers, and onions that you like best.
