Eco-Friendly Gardening Advice

Eco-friendly gardening is a rewarding and sustainable way to grow your own organic food, and it can lead to great garden savings.

This diagram for a salsa garden illustrates how planting in wide rows permits more plants in a smaller space. You might be able to get a third tomato plant in this space, but by putting only two tomato plants here, there is plenty of room to put pepper plants (either hot or sweet), onions, and herbs in the open areas. This design works best with determinate tomatoes, which don’t get as big as indeterminate tomatoes.
