Jalapeno up close

I grabbed a four pack of jalapenos at the store a couple of months ago. All four seem to be doing ok in their pot and have set fruit. Rock it.

I'm a pretty bad gardener (now that's a bad pun, I'll admit), over all, but this year I seem to be paying more attention to little things like watering plants before the collapse into straw-colored dust.

I'm looking forward to putting these peppers in the most freakishly hot curry that you can imagine. Home grown peppers by far outrank the over-watered (and therefore mellowed out) supermarket variety.


  1. Mistah Gardner, very impressive. Your plants look great. Mine are doing pretty well in their garden boxes, because of the mulching efforts a few weeks ago.

  2. You'll always be the best Gardner I know.

  3. They'll taste even better if you grow a goatee.
