Springing Forward


I may have gotten a little excited about the spring weather. Some years we go almost directly from winter to summer. This year has been lovely.

We made a special trip to Sego Nursery in North Hollywood yesterday for 5 tomato plants (3 Juliet grape, 1 Cherokee Purple, 1 yellow Kellogg’s Breakfast), a Gypsy pepper, 2 Thai basil, Italian oregano, English thyme, a succulent,  and the pink geraniums. Picked up 3 purple potato vines, star jasmine, and another odd little succulent on our way home from music this afternoon.

With all the light in the evenings I should be able to plant after work this week.

  1. Which one is the gypsy pepper? I’ve never heard of it before, does it produce mild or hot peppers?

      It says on the label “frying pepper,” so I figured for some reason it would not be too hot. I found notes online saying that it’s a mild pepper, smaller than a bell and more tapered. We have such intense heat in our yard in the summers, that I go with small to medium tomatoes and I’m trying the same approach with peppers this year!

    One of my all time favorite things to eat is a home grown Tomato sandwich with a good bread, real Mayo and salt. Heaven !
