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

Friday, June 21, 2013

I think that’s what’s growing on my deck.

I’m 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 don’t want to consume pesticides, but that seemed way too high and I posted a photo of my option – buy a $3 pepper plant.

On May 4th it looked like this.

Six weeks later here’s a close-up of what I’ve got.

I understand that produce prices fluctuate with the season, but I haven’t priced how much the organic stuff is affected. It doesn’t really matter though. The only store stocking organic peppers is 15 miles away so I don’t shop there very often. Walking out my back door is much more convenient.

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