So it’s been four weeks since my last garden update.
The same coworker took care of my plants while we were in Florida and did a good job. However, before we left, the cosmos, marigolds, and poppies up and died. I staked my pepper plants before I left, which helped them when we had some strong storms.
I also realized that my biggest pepper plants were getting just a fraction more of light each day, so I rearranged things to move the smaller plants. They shot up in size. Next year, the peppers will all go on the brightest side of the deck and the herbs will all go on the other side.
Before we get to the mostly good, let’s go over the “What the Heck Is That?” portion of our garden tour.
The hitchhiker plant became covered overnight in some whitish covering. It looked like bird poop with black lines in it. Seen from the underside of the leaves, they looked almost like seeds or eggs. I did find what appears to be a spider, as well.
What the Heck Is That?
The basil is mostly doing fine, as is the sesame.
The peppers are really spicy. We had one with a samgyeopsal dinner several nights ago and Good Man yelled, “Ah! A-bomb!”
