In the garden: pepper
This is the largest pepper I have ever grown (in the 3 whole years I have been gardening – ha!). I attempted to grow peppers for my first 2 years by seed and was never successful, so this year I purchased 2 plants (a chocolate and an orange pepper), planted the seedlings in containers by our south facing house wall, and waited. They are pretty protected from the rain and hopefully retain the heat the longest (when it is actually sunny) out of any other spot in the garden. I purchased this particular plant at the UBC garden sale.
Supposedly, if the weather permits, this pepper will eventually turn orange (it is a “true” orange pepper) and then I will snap another picture – right before I exuberantly eat it!!
