Christopher’s Spicy Garden Salsa – peace. love. quinoa

Aug 06

We are finally reaping the benefits of growing a garden!
We have successfully grown onions, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and even a cucumber (that the bugs didn’t attack).

Chris gets excited about the tomatoes and peppers because he LOVES to make salsa. He’s pretty good at it, his salsa is ALWAYS delicious. Look, anything that comes from a home-grown organic garden is bursting with flavor & gratifying.  You see in the photos, Chris gathering all of the necessary ingredients for his {what he likes to think of “famous”} salsa.
