The community garden plot is doing pretty well too. Some of the plants look a bit beat up, but I think they’ll be alright. When we bought our pepper starts, the hot banana peppers came in a pack of 6 starts. We planted 2 in containers on the porch, and the other 4 in the garden. Banana peppers are awesome pickled and I have no shortage of ideas for their use. We also planted the Roma tomato plant and put a tomato cage around it. We weeded and did a bit of tilling; all the rain and our walking around in it when it was muddy last week had caused a lot of deep pock marks and trenches. It looks a lot better now.
Check it out - here is the container garden:
The mighty broccoli plants.
Broccoli, hot banana pepper, bell pepper, and habanero pepper (the aphids are back, but we've got a fresh lemon juice concoction for them.)
The habanero again, our sad yucca, the chard, and cayenne pepper.
Orange bell pepper, jalapeno, Hungarian Wax, super chili, chocolate pepper, serrano, some flowers, and another hot banana pepper.
New Mexican Chile start. It's still moving along. I'd say it's about 3 inches tall now. I'm really hoping it takes off.
Our first pepper! It's a Hungarian Wax! It looks like it's going to grow upside down. I love when they do that. :-)
And the community garden:
This is a view of our plot at the community garden. Our plot is from the post you see at the left to the hay. I think some people got the impression that the whole thing was our plot. I wish!
I hope you guys can actually make something out of these pictures. There is grass going right up to the garden and the plants are still pretty small as we buried them deep. Good thing too because it's been a lot windier than I recall Missouri being lately.
Well, I'm pretty tired, we worked a lot today! I'm off to relax, oh and probably eat some vegan ice cream, calories have been more difficult for me to come by sans tooth.
'Til next time!
