When the stay at home orders started, I began to think that this would be the perfect time to start gardening a little bit again.
I went up to my favorite farmers market, and they had one jalapeño plant left. It was a sign! That plant was mine.
On June 12, I decided to plant them into the big green container I had from a few years ago for my green bell pepper plants.
I have done all the tricks. Coffee grounds around the stems. I have use an epsom salt/ water mix once a week. And even added some egg shells to try and keep the bugs away. The coffee and epsom salt has definitely worked in regards to creating a bigger bounty. I am still having issues keeping the bugs off at the moment.

This plant has grown quite a bit and has one bud starting to bloom and so many others, not far behind.
Here is my journey so far:
