We were determined to grow some vegetables this summer but didn't end up getting it together for a bigger garden patch. Instead, we planted this little guy. I am proud to say that we seem to have a healthy jalapeno pepper growing (though I have to admit this one started from a starter plant, not a seed.) We keep saying...next spring we will be on top of it. This remains to be seen.
The marigolds and lavender are supposedly natural pesticide plants. We got the inspiration for this little patch from the book "The Practical Organic Gardener" by Brenda Little. Though, we were much less intense about it than she would have liked.
