“I’ve planted Basil, Cilantro, Hot & Sweet Banana Peppers, Tomatoes, & a Pumpkin plant. I planted the pumpkin first and it the vine has been growing really great. I finally actually started growing a couple of pumpkins last weekend. They are growing fast and since I took these pictures, they have almost doubled in size. The basil is out of control and the hot banana peppers have fed me well. I’ve been stuffing them with cheddar cheese and diced tomato, onion, and green pepper and wrapped them in bacon. Damn good! The sweet banana pepper plant hasn’t done a whole lot and the tomoatoes are getting picked off by the local rat or squirrel population. All in all, I’m proud of my 1st experience in planting and look forward to doing it better next year.”
