From top to bottom (with the abbreviations in parenthesis):
1 – 2’ row of cilantro (C)

2 – Tomitillo’s (t.tillo)
2 – Big Tomatoes like beefsteak or better boy for Matt’s sandwiches (big)

Basil (ba) interspersed around the tomatoes
Parsley (p) interspersed around the tomatoes
2 or so marigold (mg) plants also interspersed w/ tomatoes – they are supposed to be good for pollination and getting rid of bugs ‘n stuff. Yeah for companion planting!
So I know I’m missing garlic which is essential to any salsa I would make but according to my grandpa (who is my guru/idol on all things food growing) I have to wait until fall to plant garlic. Plus it’s supposed to be good planted near roses b/c they help each other. Again I don’t really understand companion planting but I’m going with it….
Am I missing anything? What else goes in salsa that I could grow? Am I going to have enough peppers/tomatoes to make salsa? Any other thoughts?
