northguineahills: DrBrownCow: dryknife: DrBrownCow: dryknife: Instead he should grow chile peppers and make a hot sauce from New York City.

salsa.

I stand corrected.

Just sayin'.   The point is the same really.  The city slicker version couldn't be spicy enough to satisfy a Texan

In my nano-garden on my fire escape in Brooklyn, i grew ghost peppers, carolina reapers, tomatillas, jalapenos, cilatro, and tomatoes. I made salsa that was to spicey for my Mexican wife and her friends (perfect for me).


Good for you! A small garden can be very satisfying as you have demonstrated. (And you have sense enough to not grow corn in a small space.)

Cool. I didn't know they went in for industrial art. Must be a new thing.


Not really a new thing.  The popularity of their "Art of The Motorcycle" show, which broke all previous attendance records set the stage for a lot more industrial design exhibits.

HailRobonia: FarkinNortherner:

We have two 8x4 raised beds out back which (in year one, not having grown veggies before) have produced more pumpkins, corn, basil, zucchini, summer squash, and tomatoes than we know what to do with.

Most people eat those, but if you are brave enough...


Ha!

I had a bunch over hanging baskets, and even a 6' x 2' wooden box a friend made for me (all against the fire code, but I was on the top floor).

Oh man, I should have kept my mouth shut.      Apparently, Pace made a salsa and a Picante sauce and had variations of the same "New York City!" commercial for both products.   Picante sauce is thinner than salsa and Pace marketed it more as an ingredient.   There is a hot version.   Salsa is thicker and used for dipping.  Oh, "salsa" is Spanish for sauce anyway.   Anyway, their salsa commercial/product is what was stuck in my brain and I assumed the OP was referring to the kind of "hot sauce" where only a few drops are added and not Picante, but that might not have been the case.

Either way, the commercial is dumb, even if mostly memorable.   A salsa/picante/hot sauce garden is a great idea for a small space, even in NEW YORK CITY!
