The pepper plants that we started from seed have all come up, and the ones that I separated early on are doing well. The rest are too close together--I think....I don't really know, so I'm leaving them. We planted three kinds of peppers and I think they all came up. Ironically, I no longer eat peppers. They are on my "no" list. They are in the night shade family, and are pro-inflammatory somehow, and I have been instructed to avoid them--and tomatoes, and potatoes.
This is my first garden....and like I said, it's some rookie BS. But now that I'm landing on the ground in my home, I can at least see it again. I will find my leather gloves and go pull some weeds here real soon.
I remember my grandpa's garden. Both of my grandpas had gardens with long straight rows and plants stood up on sticks and trailing from twine between the sticks. I loved to pick tomatoes, warm from the sun and so tangy and vibrant. My tomatoes didn't come up. I don't think. I'm not sure what is growing out there. This is going to be quite an experiment.
