My pepper plants grew too big for the space, so I decided to try to transplant them, in the 100 degree weather! I would douse with water each morning and evening, but when I came home from work, they were wilted. I was worried that I would loose the 5 plants that I moved. (my garden is planted directly into the soil). Luckily, my neighbor is retired and offered to water mid day, which is what they needed. Now, a week out of the heat wave, the pepper plants are all doing well and have many peppers on the plants. The rest of the plants did okay, but I did water twice per day. Will you omit using metal planters in the future?
I love archives! I went back to this story to learn how to harvest. Come to find out I never washed the seeds in bleach and I left the jar in the sun for 5 days. I will try it with a towel covering. Thanks! Jo Ann
You may be interested in a book I am reading called the Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan. One of the plants that he talks about is the Tulip. They were traded in Europe from Turkey in 1550. The name Tulip comes from a turkish work for "turban". For centuries, the tulip was prized for its uniform color and once the two-color tulip started to show it was found to be because of a virus that was spread from the peach potato aphid, from peach trees. And, once they discovered this in the 1920', they set out to destroy any flowers that had color breaks. One of the first tulips to arrive in Europe in 1500's was the Carolus Clusius. It was rare, and the bulbs were coveted. These prized flowers were stolen from a collector's garden and seeds were sown all over Europe. However, tulips do not come true from seeds and bear little resemblance to the parent flower. Seedlings were born and created an abundance of different shape and color tulips. In this book Pollan also talks about the potato, the apple and marijuana. He explores the evolution of each plant and how it is linked to human desire: sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control. Good read for all garden enthusiasts.

Dont buy the mystery box in the christmas tree! It cost me 5 FV PLUS 5 Gifts and all I got was a white lamb. The same lamb that I got about 20 of them in my gift boxes. MYSTERY BOX IS A RIP OFF. I thought I would get a chicken coop or something bigger than a lamb.
