Following the tragic end to two new cameras, I have been depressed (and apprehensive) about posting anything without photos. However! from the dusty confines of a storage box comes an archaic yet fully functioning Sony Cyber-Shot. HALLELUJAH!
Though it is September and the end of many planting seasons up north, another Nica season is only just beginning.
Without further ado, I must address the starlets in my garden: Bell Peppers!
Out of the eight hearty plants that i transplanted from seed boxes and are now tucked cozily in a garden bed, SIX have peppers! The seed packet, a mixed bag if you will, promises a certain percentage of 4 or 5 different varieties. I've been waiting eagerly for each plant to show off some distinct color or shape, an inkling to it being an Orange Sun? a Chardonnay?
or a Big Red??Personally I don't know what any of these varieties truly looks like, aside from the photo arrangement on the packet. Deducing the implication of a "bull's horn" from this nombre italiano, i'm fairly certain i've got a Sweet Corno di Toro
Keeping with the mixed bag theme, I gently clipped a pepper or two from several of the plants, encouraging them to continue busting out blooms and fruit, and the others i am allowing to patiently develop their perfect pepper potential.
