While we didn't have the opportunity to start a "real" garden this year, I couldn't resist buying a few plants -- one red pepper, and one Roma tomato.
Quite honestly, I though this pepper plant was beyond hope. While the tomato sprouted, it didn't grow a single inch for months. Finally, at the end of the summer, it produced one solitary flower, and one solitary pepper.
Pretty, isn't it? But here's a little perspective...
It's an admittedly large lime, but it's also a decidedly small pepper!
Our tomato plant did better... barely. Two tiny Romas, out of the plethora of blossoms it produced (I think something must have been eating them). Ho hum... perhaps we can improve our "harvest" next year!
