Urban gardening 2010: Peppers (June)

The Hudson Valley Seed Library says that the Matchbox Peppers are "fiery with a sweet side" (kind of like me, ha!!).

I love how P planted them in a used olive oil tin (the idea is from the book "Organic Crops in Pots", a how-to-book with brilliant projects which show you not only how to grow them all from scratch, but how to plant them in an array of attractive containers, from colanders to recycled tins. (It was one of his birthday presents to me last year).

 Peppers in late April (still inside the house!)

Late May

 Mid June

 There are a bunch of small white flowers all over the 2 plants, so we hope that we will start getting the peppers soon!
