Perhaps in reaction to the terrible ice storm and damage to the yard we experienced a few weeks ago, I spent some time getting ready for this summer’s veggie crops. And by using the work “crops”, I am being VERY generous. Usually we just have several pepper plants and maybe a tomato plant, plus various herbs. This year, I have a few Scotch Bonnet plants that survived the winter and are growing nicely already. I also have some habañero and Italian parsley that are thriving.
I addition to these holdovers from last year, I (so far) added a jalapeño plant, Japanese eggplant, and zucchini squash. And lastly, we have a sweet potato that has developed shoots, so that will be going in the ground soon too.
I don’t have much of a green thumb, but gardening is something fun to learn and can be delicious too!
