My husband and I decided to grow a few plants on our balcony this year. The above is the pepper that we will be getting to harvest! We are delighted. I haven't been much of a gardener in the past. I've killed one to many avocado plants in my day. But there is something about seeing something recognizable and edible grow.
...even if it's just one little guy. Peppers can be expensive.
(the orange stick is a pencil, it rained too hard last week and knocked them over, so he's holding them up)
We also have oregano and basil...
Okay, I confess, I have no idea which one is which above. Any gardeners out there? Help please?
All I know is that the dried basil in my kitchen is running out (too many homemade pizzas), but having planted oregano and basil, I lost track of which I planted where. And those little guys on the bottom don't seem to be very fruitful anyway.
So really, if any of you have any tips, it would be much appreciated. I'm guessing the big guy is the basil. Am I just supposed to pull of the leaves? How do I use it?
