Where did the second half of June go?  We spent last weekend in Palm Springs with friends - 114 degrees!  Too hot  to grow much of anything worth eating, but the palms look great.

Here's an updated photo of the sickly pepper from a few posts ago - as you can see, it's much happier now and bearing plenty of jalapenos.

Speaking of jalapenos,  I've got several of these giants waiting to be stuffed and loaded into the Chile Grill for the 4th.

This is Rutgers loaded with tomatoes in the Earthbox.  Everything is progressing nicely with the exception of the two mentioned in the last post.  No rant this time.

Don't let the size fool you, they're actually SunSugar  cherries.

Here's wishing everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July!


  1. Boy, those are some big jalapeno peppers. Your tomatoes look happy...pretty soon they will be ripe :)

  2. Thanks Robin. Poppers for the Fourth!

  3. Those peppers were crazy good - and hot - on the fourth! How did you turn that plant around?
