I'm at 8,000 feet here in Southern Colorado
USDA Hardiness Zone 4
The ground on my property is rocky. I decided to use 2 liter and gallon containers for my salsa garden.
I use potting soil, vermiculite and perlite. Interestingly enough, I am living in The Perlite Capital of the World.
During the growth stage, I use a high nitrogen "tea" using my urine and hair (I shave my hair every few weeks).
I am growing jalapeno, serrano, habanero, Big Jim, Chili Red
, Garden Salsa
, and tomatillos.
(I also am growing rosemary, sweet mint, and mint for other, non-salsa uses)
I have spent about 30-40 bucks for soil, plants and soil amendments.
So, I figure I need to make about 10 batches of salsa to break even
