Happy Garden Sunshine

Early morning mist, sun peeking through after days of rain showers and plants are loving every second of it.  The porch garden loves the light and I love photographing the plants in their delight.  Even the baby rabbits climb the large staircase to get to them for a nibble on the veggies and herbs even when they have their full in the Promise Gardens.  Gardening is such a pleasure just for the pure enjoyment of it and diversion from busy schedules.  Happy weekend my gardening friends and enjoy your garden labors at the table!  xox

Some Like It Hot — Peppers in Containers

Peppers, Peppers & More Peppers

Remember those peppers I planted last year? You may remember my discussion about where and how to plant and I shared that I plant mine in containers, planters, and baskets on my porch where they get 100+ sunny temps and grow like crazy. Alas, I am posting a photo I shot last year when I harvested the first batch. They are gorgeous and really yummy hot! I plant them everywhere and this year my planting included a few new varieties, including, “Hot Hot Cherry Red Peppers” which I love especially for breakfast with eggs and bacon. (Yes, I am truly a Southern gal)!

We know tomatoes, herbs and other veggies can grow quite well in containers. I grow all of mine in them and I would not do it any other way since they are in planters right off the kitchen and allow me to “grab” what I need for dinner in seconds. I also like the easy care of them. You can see my older posts here when I first started out in this process of vegetable container gardening for more information. Just click on “categories” link for the posts.

Give them a try and if you like “hot and spicy” food like us “Cajun, Creole, Southern and Southwestern” cooks do, try some of these for instant gratification.   Enjoy, Chef Jacy
