Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Monday, March 19, 2018

The best I can say is my balcony garden is green.  My tomatoes don't seem to want to tomato. They just sit there teasing us, taunting me with potential.  I don't think they like me.  My herbs are doing well, although I think I crowded my basil a bit too much, they aren't as big and bushy as I like. But they taste great. The orgegano is awesome, thank you for asking. 

Most of my peppers are ... sad ... bad ... and apathetic. They just didn't want to grow. If the weather holds out, I may get some late peppers in the fall.  However, one pepper is doing reasonably well:

photo of pepper plant I looked out earlier in the week and saw the red peaking through the green and almost did a happy dance.  The wind blew the little identifier marker away a long time ago so I don't have a clue which one it is. Couple day or two and I should have the first one to try. Lovely colour on it. Can't wait to see how hot they are.
