Pepper Planter two

Welcome to my next pepper planter!

Solar Flare!

Seriously - how could I not??  rated very hot - not extremely hot though :( It is a late season  2" x 1.5" habanero type pepper.  Matures from light green to orange to red.  Has a mango in its future over chicken.

Banana Hot

Only a medium heat, early season 8" long by 1.25" wide, matures from green to yellow to red.

Australian Lantern Hot
 Australian Lantern Red

A very hot 1" long by 3/4" wide late season pepper matured from green to orange to red.

A medium pequin  1" x .5" mid season pepper that matures from purple to red.

Relleno Equador Sweet

A sweet 6" x 1.25" mid season ( apparently it can't read a calendar as it has a pod already) matures from green to red.  Then some olive oil, salt and pepper and toss it on a charcoal grill.

McDonald's Orange Grove
McDonalds Orange Grove

A hot 1.25" x 3.75 late season tabasco pepper, matures from greenish yellow to orange to red.  Angie has dibs on these peppers as last summer she and her grandfather got a make your own hot sauce kit, and played mad scientist (stress the mad).  I was informed they have some "ideas" for this summer.  Yes, nothing like watching your child pack chem lab goggles, a mask and neoprene gloves for a day at her grandfathers!

Jalapeno Jumbo
 Jalepeno Jumbo

3.5" x 1.75" hot jalapeno mid-season pepper, matures from green to red.  Good for all the standard jalapeno stuff.  I like to smoke these  for home made chipotle peppers.

Yes, coming soon --- more plants.  Amazing what I can fit on a balcony and still have room for chairs a table and us!    

Quiz is seriously broken again!

You Are Fabulously Friendly

You're nice to everyone you come across, even if they aren't being particularly nice to you.

You genuinely like others. You love your friends, and you're happiest when you're a social butterfly.

You always have a smile, joke, or kind word for someone. You're kind to everyone, even if they aren't very friendly back.

You are simply a people person. You naturally make friends with almost everyone you meet.



  1. Thanks for the quiz! I am fabulously funky. That brightened my day. I always just thought I was just weird. It is going to be one hot and fabulous summer at your house. I love your brightly colored hanging planter too.

  2. How cute! I did not know you could grow pepper's in those bags.
