こんばんは。How’s it going?

Each year we plant a few herbs and peppers in pots on our deck and this year, we have a new-fangled planter that we will try out. It’s a small self-watering planter, with space for multiple small veggies. It recommended between 6-8 pepper plants, which I think is too many, but we’ll see how it does with the seedlings we planted:

  • Jalapeño peppers
  • Serrano peppers
  • Ghost peppers
  • Sweet mint
  • Mini-tomatoes

We also left space to plant some Scotch Bonnet seeds that my mom is bringing over for us. It’s funny, but those seeds have found their way from Miami (and maybe Jamaica?), to California, and then here in Texas.

This planter was on sale, so we bought it for only about US $17, so we can’t go wrong. Last year, our Jalapeño plant grew like crazy but didn’t give us any fruit. 😞 Here’s hoping this one will bear plenty for us. The mix that the directions called for is potting mix, dolomite, and fertilizer. Could this be the secret combination?

I hope you had a good day!
