I absolutely love to garden and while I live in an apartment I try to do what I can. It's so relaxing to come home after a stressful day at work and spend some time watering and weeding outside. I didn't get on the band wagon quick enough this spring to rent a plot in town for a garden, so I've been growing a few things on our patio. We have a pretty big patio so I was able to put a lot of pots out there. I have peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, lettuce, beans, peas, cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash.
So far I have ton of lettuce and a few budding peppers and tomatoes. But this evening after work while I was watering I noticed this pepper on steroids. The rest of the peppers are just the size of gumballs so this one must be stealing all the miracle grow. I do have a decent sized tomato and jalapeno now too.
I can't wait until everything is growing - as you can see I have some flowers on the yellow squash in the background, but no fruit development yet. Hopefully when we get home from our 4th weekend there will be some!
