No joke, I've been trying to grow this pepper since sometime in June. I realize the problem has been that the pot is far too small, but what else do you do when you live in a condo?? Regardless, the weather has stayed so nice that I FINALLY have a lovely little pepper to enjoy! I'll be able to eat it in one bite, but i'm still excited. I also noticed a new one blooming yesterday, but i'm sure this 70 degree weather is about to end any day. I can't wait to have my very own garden in my very own backyard someday!
