Balcony Garden Update: My First Pepper Harvest!

in #gardeninglast year

If you've been following my balcony garden updates thus far, then you might remember the lovely pepper blooms I published here just a few weeks ago. Yesterday we finally harvested the ones that have turned red and had them in a salad.

Though I cannot share the flavor, here are some photos:

Between a crazy load of work and a sick cat (yup, another one is showing signs of wear), I haven't had much time to write or publish anything to the blockchain. I miss my book and I miss writing fiction. Soon. Soon? Soon.


Those look good! Based on the size, I'd guess they have got plenty of light and warmth :)

Not that much light, but plenty of heat. It's Israel. The middle east is not known for it's cool climate. It was over 35c this week, and it's not even August.

they look so tasty and healthy Ilana , also im in love with gardening

Me too! What are you growing? :)

my mother grow some vegetables , and a kind of Rose flower, that we mix it with tea as a drink, also some cactus :)

Eating something that you've grown is always rewarding. They look terrific.
