My name is Patti and I live in Southern Oregon. I have been married for 30 years, I have 2 daughters and 4 grandkids, 1 dog, several cats, 36 hens, 3 roosters and 14 ducks. I grow almost everything that you put into a good tomato salsa (I don't grow limes.......... yet). I am always in search of the best tomato, pepper, garlic, onion, and cilantro to make my salsa even better. Share your favorites with us and lets make some great salsa.
Hi Polly, I love salsa and guacamole too. I had to laugh when you said that about the pimentos. I grow my own peppers also. Some of them have such pretty foliage and peppers that they can just be fun to grow as ornamentals. I love grilled cheese, guacamole and cucumbers so I am going to try them together, that does sound good!
I have been keeping my eye on your Iris cubit too! Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Patty. My name is Lynn, I live in the Willamette Valley, OR area. Love home made salsa, growing tomatoes, pepper and basil. I will be checking back for the latest info. Thanks for the wonderful Cubit. Love your graphics.
Thank you Lynn! I think we met over on the PNW Gardening Cubit. Please fell free to add any information you have on what you like to grow and any tips or tricks are also welcome. I will be adding information as I go. I am crazy about tomatoes and peppers and love salsa.
Bell peppers are tricky and your right the non-bell types are much more productive and easier to grow. I grow a few different colored bell peppers every year and they rarely turn the color they should be so end up with loads of green bell peppers. I like the green bells but would like to have a red and yellow also! I grow a pablano too, I like the flavor and the texture of them.
Hi -- I'm Sandy and I'm a salsaholic! LOL, it's the main reason I garden, how could I not join this group? Oh, and jalapeno poppers, and pickled peppers, and roasted tomato sauce... hope spring gets here soon!
Thanks for the welcome Patti -- I love gardening and love eating salsa!
Lynn, I bake mine too -- no breading except a little topping of bread crumbs, and everyone I've served them to has agreed that not having the breading is a good thing. I mix some shredded cheddar and taco seasoning with the cream cheese usually, but have also made them with mozzarella and pepperoni, and even blue cheese and some ranch dressing mix. I'd say you could put just about anything in a jalapeno and cook it up and it will taste good!
