Wordless Wednesday: Pepper Plant

by Migdalia

When I lived in Long Island, we had a huge backyard, almost half an acre. I loved it because I had a garden. But when I moved back to the city, I couldn’t take it with me. In the beginning it didn’t bother me. I love living in the city! But I missed my garden.

So what can a City Girl with country desires do?

Plant a window sill garden, using every available space!

This is my green pepper plant. I’m already envisioning what I’ll make when these get bigger!

The bottom little one fell as I was setting up the holding stick. What a difference from the one above!

Happy WW!

    What a great idea! I should grow some vegetables on my little patch of outdoor space here in SF. Not sure which ones…

    I just passed a fruit/veggie street vendor and he had the most gorgeous peppers. Yummmm

    I too miss my mini-garden in the ‘burbs. Will have to get myself a couple of plants and “hook it up”.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pepper plant. So now you have the garden you left and the spicy attitude you picked up. Good for you!

    I love the tiny little one!!

    I take for granted the space I have in my deck and yard. I started an herb garden and a jalapeño garden and it dried out. I would love to have the time to grow and care for my own veggie garden. It’s so therapeutic.

    Nothing like a home-grown veggie! That’s a nice cocecha in your hand. : )

    I have mint , basil, oregano, chives and many more herbs at home. I love them!! Thanks for the idea of green pepper plant. I thought it required much more space…

    OMG! Too cute. Love the mini one…

    I love peppers! and they do so well indoors – with luck and a lot of care you should be able to keep it going the whole year – I have a 2 years old plant that has been alive here in Chicago (tell me about winters…) and I normally get peppers around February. Check my indoor pepper post. Enjoy that little pepper!!!

    I have to plant in my kitchen and condo patio, too! I hate that. But I do a lot of gardening when I go to my parent’s home in D.C. They’ve got such great herbs and vegetables growing that it makes our home cooking so much more flavorful! Love it! Let me know what you do w/those little peppers. I hope it yields a lot for you! :)
