City Girl Goes Country (Part 9) $30 worth of peppers?

Friday, June 21, 2013

I think thatís whatís growing on my deck.


Iím basing my estimate on my blog entry of May 4th (The $3 organic pepper) which I wrote when I investigated the price of organic produce.

I donít want to consume pesticides, but that seemed way too high and I posted a photo of my option Ė buy a $3 pepper plant.

On May 4th it looked like this.


Six weeks later hereís a close-up of what Iíve got.


I understand that produce prices fluctuate with the season, but I havenít priced how much the organic stuff is affected. It doesnít really matter though. The only store stocking organic peppers is 15 miles away so I donít shop there very often. Walking out my back door is much more convenient.

Note: DH made the basket to protect my ďbabyĒ from the high winds that commonly accompany spring thunderstorms here in the South.
