Early April Garden Update - Seems the tomatoes have almost outgrown the terrarium.
We were walking around the other day and came across this awesome container garden infront of an apartment building on Wolseley.
Let the mayhem begin!
Repotting the sweet basil.
We pickled our hungarian hot wax banana peppers!
We used this recipe - http://littlehouseinthesuburbs.com/2008/10/pickled-hungarian-wax-peppers.html - but swapped the pickling salt with sea salt and the mustard seeds with dill. We also through a few cayennes in because our banana peppers were definitely lacking in spice this year (bummer)…(that’s right I’m bringing back ‘bummer’).
One purple mini belle pepper and one hungarian hot wax banana pepper to add to the handful of cayennes he picked earlier this month.
I pruned my plants. You should too.
Pruning is good because it directs all the plants energy to growing the healthy and productive parts instead of trying to fix damaged and unproductive parts.
Every week or so I snip off any damaged leaves, blossoms that didn’t get pollinated, and any leaves that start to grow at the base of the plant (those leaves are inefficient sun gatherers and won’t lead to any fruit).
