For about the fifth Harvest Monday in a row, I've pulled off a ton (not by Erin's perspective) of jalapenos. I only have two plants and their in partial shade which makes me even more shocked that they produce like they are. They're the lone plants that survived the heat of July and have come back now in late August and September with a vengeance. These, most likely, will find a home tomorrow in the teacher work room for anyone who wants them as I don't eat them at all. The ones this late in the year are just way, way too hot for me, but I'm excited to bring something into the house to harvest! On a side note, there was an article in the local papers and in the news about a man in the Atlanta area who is getting sued by his county for producing more crops than he is zoned for.
I'm a wife, teacher and mom of two who came by gardening accidentally in order to appease a fussy child in a big-box hardware store. He saw yellow pear tomatoes (his favorite color) and we became container gardeners.
As it goes with anything involving children, my interest far outlasted his and now we have a square foot garden in our corner yard.
As long as we can battle the bugs and keep the dog from the soil, we might have some fun.
