Pretty Potted Pepper Plant

Here is a close up view of our first sweet green bell pepper. She's still smaller than an olive. Looks like we have a dozen flowers on each of the 2 potted pepper plants. At this rate, we'll have lots of peppers in June and July. Today we had a quick visit in the garden. Enough time to water the container garden, put a wire tomato cage around the baby Japanese black trifele plant, and then sow a new batch of Italian kale seeds in a five gallon container .

Also had fresh salad for lunch and dinner. And cooked up some home grown potato & onion home fries. Potatoes harvested yesterday. Umm Umm Good. Happy Gardening to Everyone!!!


  1. I'm so jealous! I have tried peppers for a few years and just not had much success. I didn't plant any this year but maybe in the years to come I will try again. Congratulations!

  2. I wanted to try a black trifele tomato but it just did not make it into the seed election this year. They are supposed to be really dark and resistant to cracking...looking forward to a picture when it's ripe.


  3. Home grown peppers are delicious. In my opinion they have more meat, they seem thicker and heavier for their size, much nicer than store bought peppers.

  4. Becky, Try again. They need some sun, water and a little small talk. You can do it.

    Mike, The plant already grew a foot. We'll post some photos. I look forward to seeing what it tastes like too..

    Margaret, We'll give you some next month. Looks like we're gonna have baskets full. Come back for updates on the potted pepper plants.. :)

  5. Wow, I love your peppers. I have five plants growing this year in my square foot garden. I've never had great success with them but I am ever hopeful that this year they'll do well. I just stumbled upon your blog and am enjoying your posts.
