Finally, A Pepper!

Nothing excites me more than seeing new growth on one of my babies, whether it’s a flower, a fruit or a vegetable. 

OK, That’s a little bit of a lie, but anyway, some of you may or may not know about my aero garden, a gift to me from my brother a couple of years ago. This thing is an amazing way to grow herbs, veggies or flowers inside your home and all that is needed is air and water!! Occasionally, some liquid nutrients also (a light will tell you when it’s time for that)

So this time, I planted veggies for making salsa, cherry tomatoes, and jalapeno peppers.  The tomatoes flowered and produced early on, yet the peppers just kept flowering and I was losing all hope of pepper production until Saturday when, after listening to me whine my husband walked in the dining room and took a look at my plant. There! One is growing right there, he pointed and I finally saw it. I was just short of jumping up and down, so excited was I!

Of course, I had to take a picture.

Look close and you will see a tiny pepper

Now, in all fairness, I have to say that I chose the wrong tomatoes for salsa making, and besides, the tomatoes are pretty much done and the peppers are just starting so….

Have any of you ever tried to use an aero garden? What were the results? I’d love to hear about it! Last year when I had the herb garden, I had basil coming out of my ears! 🙂

  1. I don’t have an aero garden, but of course, seeing your plants and hearing about your harvest of tomatoes…I would like to try one. 😀

    1. You should do it! They are available at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Kohls, Target, Amazon and I know for a fact you can get the seed pods at Amazon. You can even get plain ones that you add your own seeds too if you can’t find the type of plants you want. 😉

      1. Thanks Kim, all those stores are in my area…and I often shop through Amazon. I’ll keep my eyes open and hope for a good sale.

  2. I have tried every type of gardening system anyone could think up..well, except for a garden on the moon or underwater. I had zero luck with aero gardening. I am convinced the failure was due to me being stuck in central texas. Here in OK everything grows like mad. I basically stick a seed in the ground and ignore it and kablammo…I have veg!

  3. Good morning and thanks for your early like of my latest blog. Seems very sentimental to watch that first pepper but I would rather enjoy it sauteed on top of a rib steak.
    Un baccione. Arrivederci!
