Today I went on my lunch break and picked up some plants for my backyard. I used to be going to plant them after work and take a picture of them in the bottom, nevertheless it took so long, there was no mild left to get the picture. Then I used to be going to attempt to only draw a diagram, I fought with some diagramming software, then I stated, that is dumb, I can draw an image”, and by the time I drew the image and annnotated it, it nonetheless did not look nice. So I decided to just clarify what’s going on with words. I’ve a garden plot that is forty toes by 9 and a half feet. There’s a 20 foot chunk in the front that is straight dirt. Then a 10 foot by 9.5 foot chunk that’s the outdated tree stump that’s slowly decomposing. Then one other 10 foot by 9.5 foot chunk that’s the again half of the backyard.
Eight peppers. The label at the farmers market said “Sweet Cayenne (Jimmy Nardello)”, I don’t understand how correct it’s as a result of I got these from the native Hmong market, and as English is a second language, I’ve had mixups earlier than. I’m ninety five percent positive these are a candy pepper, but I’ve gotten “Sweet Cayenne” from this similar vendor they usually definitely were not Jimmy Nardellos up to now. So I’d say 60 p.c certain they are real Jimmy Nardellos. 2 crimson candy peppers. These had an image and she mentioned they have been candy peppers but I did not write down the variability. I think it is Corno di Toro maybe. 4 candy green peppers. I didn’t write down the precise selection, all I know is she stated they were delicious when roasted, and that I should decide them when they are green. I feel, after some googling, it’s Shishito. I nonetheless have 2 Corno di Toro plants that I need to find a spot for, and four Thai sizzling purple peppers. This year, the youngsters decided they did not wish to grow Carolina Reapers and Dragons Breath peppers, after two of them tried consuming a Dragon’s Breath pepper uncooked with no milk. Didn’t do effectively with ghost peppers final yr though, a deer came and grazed the plants to the ground. Hopefully that doesn’t occur this 12 months.
