This year, TGIM and I decided to try our hand at gardening. TGIM's friend is cleaning up his yard and had this wood and 2 arbor trellis things laying around and gave them to us for our garden. TGIM made 3 of the 5 garden boxes you see with that wood. We decided to do raised beds because the "dirt" here is more like concrete and to be honest, neither one of us had the desire to till it. We thought raised beds would be easier. Plus I like the look of them. AND when 2 small boys decided to help garden, it's easier to direct them to weeds and not my precious beauties.
Every morning and honestly most afternoon I go and check this little guy for the beginnings of fruit. What can I say? I'm obsessed with my garden and especially this. All my other pepper plants (and there are 15 others) have fruits on them. Larger fruits. In fact, I've even picked some of them already. This guy is giving me fits though. FINALLY two days ago I saw that little, beautiful, green bud. This my friends is a teeny-tiny poblano. It's my favorite pepper. It just might be the supreme ruler of peppers. I cannot describe my love for this pepper. Hold on to your hats folks because when this baby is ready, we're going to have some serious poblano fun.
