    DC Poblano not ripening

    Hi all. Haven't been around much this summer. Lots going on here at home. I've still been growing and harvesting but am now having an issue I need help with. Have a poblano plant that is doing great. I'm using them fresh and have roasted a bunch but want some to ripen so I can dry into...

    Thanks! I think leaving them alone may be the best thing to do.

    DC Balcony Glog 2016

    This miserable spring made me ignore the balcony. Too cold. Then it got HOT! Think leaving everything alone may have been a good call. Here is where we are early July. And close ups Giant jalapeƱo. I never get them to do well and this is the sickliest plant that survived. I will get a...

    I'm not in Florida but my parents are there every winter. I know a lot of the people here are locals. I am so sorry for the last week. It's been horrible. Blessings to all.

    How to break down bones in garden

    Years ago the National Zoo in DC sold small statues of zoo animals made out of composted manure. You put them in your garden and they slowly decomposed, fertilizing your garden. I thought that would be perfect for Mother's Day. Mom is hard to buy for. Sent my then husband a week before to buy...

    How soon can I repot again?

    Welcome! I have had great success in pots on a west facing balcony in Washington DC. I find that 3 plants of various sizes, one small, one tall, one bushy work well in a 10 gallon pot. This year I am trying one plant per large pot but conditions have been miserable. Hard to judge what is best...

    I over wintered mine as a Bonchi. It did well and survived this dismal may. Looking good so far. Love the plant.

    DC Balcony Glog 2016

    Well, the sun has come out for 2 days in a row. Things are starting to dry out and actually watered 2 plants today for the first time in weeks. Think I have 2 casualties. This was my over wintered Trinidad Scorpion grown from seed. It didn't take well to going outside and a few days ago...
