This is the first time I think I've gotten peppers that are pepper sized and have thick walls.
Not this year. It's like a miracle, but I think it has to do with the fact that I planted the little plants deep in the ground. I covered half the stem or more. Usually more. I truly believe that turned the tide on these guys.
Not to worry, my head isn't getting too big off of my success. The carrots kept me humble.
Months of waiting and they are kinda scrawny. Sadness.
Honestly, though, I'm just glad I got carrots. I don't usually get any. Or they all look like this:
Freaky weird carrots of freaky weirdness.
Yeah, I did get a couple of those, including that wacky one above. Think there might have been a couple of rocks in the soil?
No matter, I don't believe anything smells as good as carrots do when you pull them out of the ground. For that reason alone I would grow them. It is a beautiful thing.
***This week I am prepping for the festival on Saturday, so I might be too busy to check in. I am thinking of all of you, though and I will look forward to seeing what you're all up to when I get back. I promise to have some good stories and lots of pictures. Take care!
