Here is a montage of what I picked from May to July of this year. Shown here are cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and tomatillo. All very tasty.

These two photos show how tomatillo plants grow. Loads of flowers, which produce tomatillos if cross-pollinated, so I plant two individual plants side by side. Bees and other insects fly from flower to flower to create this magic. Tomatillos have a thin layer surrounding it, which peels off easily. They look like green tomatoes and are ideal in homemade salsa. Necesito salsa!

This montage of photos gives a full view of my two larger garden plots. I then zoomed in on the husky cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatillo.  In hindsight, I probably over-planted a bit, as all of the plants are merging together. I get overzealous at the start of each growing season and now barely have walking room between the row of tomatoes and cucumbers. The harvest is still in abundance, so I'll simply make minor adjustments next time.

Today's blog post illustrates the start of my spring gardens. I decided to plant the following: various tomatoes, cucumbers, tomatillo, zucchini, and various peppers.  I planted each within 16-24 inches of spacing.

The tomatillo plant in the background came up on its own; must have been a leftover root from the year prior.  The magic of plant life!  The tomato plant in the foreground came up on its own as well, so there must be some magic in that soil.  In any case, tomatillos make great salsa due to its natural sweetness.  It's a hardy plant and continues to produce throughout a season.

My tomatillo plant produced well this summer.  Tomatillos make great salsa when you toss in an avocado and hot peppers.  Tomatillos posses a little sweetness, and if making a salsa, lightly roasting the tomatillos on a skillet adds a little smoky flavor as well.  Excellent!
