Hot Stuff

I did have one plant that has surpassed all the others in terms of production.  No its not the zucchini plant... it is my jalapeno plant!  I have already picked 27 peppers off this plant and I figured it was done for the season.... but NO its still going strong!  If you look closely at the picture you can see tons of tiny peppers growing.  It's going to be a hot time at our house when they get done.  I think I'm going to lok for a recipe for jalapeno poppers and try my hand at making my own.  How good do you think they will taste with fresh off the bush peppers?

Don't Give Up On Me

I can't believe the summer is over already and I haven't posted my garden going ons once.  Yes I actually did some container gardening this year but I've been working so many extra hours that my poor blogs have been suffering. 

Well I did have some pretty good luck this year my zucchini did wonderfully.  I had five bushes and got 20 zucchinis from them.  most of my tomato plants did well.  My cherry tomatoes still aren't doing as well as I would like.  And I tried the topsy turvey this year and wasn't impressed.  It is very flimsy and the top piece of plastic broke while I was putting it together.  The hanging ring was too small and I had to get a larger one.  When filled it is too heavy for my shepards hook which I ended up bracing with the container that had the zucchini.  I also had to water about three times more often then my other containers.  I got about t tomatoes off the plant.  For the 10 bucks I paid for it I could have gone to thew farmers market and bought a bushel of tomatoes.
