I didn’t think planting a garden would have such an impact on my morning routine, but every day I wake up looking forward to seeing what magic has happened overnight. The truth is, I can’t believe how fast my little garden has matured in such a short period of time!
Looking at those tomatoes, I wouldn’t be surprised if I was able to harvest them in the next few weeks 🙂
And look at all that basil! I can’t help but think about all of the wonderful dishes I’ll be able to put together this summer. Ensalada Caprese, homemade Pesto, Basil Chicken, etc. I can’t wait!
The original pepper that was featured in Little Pots was removed from its steam a little early due to a damaged spot on the skin. Sadly I didn’t get a picture of this, but it was a bruise the size of a quart that was beginning to attract little insects. I determined it was better to remove it than risk the safety of the plant as a whole. Seemingly enough this did the trick because I now have a new little pepper without a trace of bugs.
My husband’s Serrano Peppers are coming along – it looks like there is one pepper that is almost mature enough to pick with a few little buds tucked back behind the leaves. I’m thinking that these will go well in morning omelets, maybe a nice curry. Oh, and salsa!
I do have to admit that his photo makes the kale look rather large – on the contrary, the plant is only about 4-5″ tall at this point. I’ll have to start placing my hand in the picture to show for comparison. 🤓
Until next time … 👩🌾🌱🍅🌶
