in clover: when I don't know what else to do.....

I plant stuff in the ground.  Sometimes.

I was not feeling so great yesterday but after a talk with Michael and lots of coffee, I got up, I got dressed (kind of), and I got in the car and out into the sunshine and headed out to buy some jalapeno pepper plants.

I've never planted jalapeno peppers before because frankly, they aren't my favorite.  Nor Michael's.  But my friend Kera traded me a jar of her home canned "cowboy candy"  (sweet and hot jalapeno peppers) for a jar of my home canned dill pickles.  A few days ago, I ate cowboy candy on triscuits with cream cheese until I almost popped.  And it was almost worth it. I only say almost because I have 10 + pounds to lose in - 3 weeks.

Yesterday morning, I thought about that cowboy candy and how, if I planted some hot peppers  now,  I could put up tons of cowboy candy this fall.  And that thought was enough to get me out of the house.

It. is. that. good. 

Knock-you-right-out-of-a-rut-and-make-you-plant-something  good.  


So I bought three plants and I squeezed them into my crowded raised beds.  Not the best plan for a good harvest.

But Michael reminds me, even if these plants don't grow many peppers, we can buy locally grown peppers at the farmers market and I can still put up cowboy candy to my hearts content. 

I love a man with a backup plan!

When I don't know what else to do, sometimes I plant things in the ground.
