All of the bell peppers on this plant came out pointed like this one. The seeds came from a store bought red pepper (see how it's just turning red now) - I'm wondering if the seeds didn't come from some kind of spicy pepper crossing to make them pointed? We will find out when we eat this one (once it's bigger and all red).
Ordered the seeds for this one from eBay... Purple Fairy - it's supposed to be a bright vibrant purple. The plant produced two, but slugs got the first one. They started on this one - not sure if it'll make it until it changes colors. This is the only tomato variety that seems to be greatly effected by slugs.
This is the surprise tomato. When planting the peppers into containers from the seedling tray this random tomato popped up. I didn't plant it, it must have been in the dirt I bought - but I figured I'd leave it alone and see how it did. It's got two tomatoes! They're kind of pointed like the Roma plant was, but with much fewer branches. It's like this tiny plant put all of its energy into making a couple fruits instead of growing its branches.
This spring #2 planted the "butt" of celery that we had already cut up. We had tried it in the house but it went bad so we figured - nothing to lose trying it outside, right? Turns out it's growing pretty well. We haven't watered it or cared for it at all. We do have to mow around it though as it's in the lawn beside the raspberry bush.
