During the pandemic, we have spent more time in the yard, and one of the fruits of our labor were bell peppers.
To put this in perspective:
The two peppers on the left we bought at the market for 99 cents.
The two peppers on the right we grew ourselves. Given the cost of the plants, the planter, the irrigation, they probably cost 99 dollars, and it took at least 3 months to grow them.
Time and money well-spent.
I won’t talk about our carrots. Not a single one succeeded. I think we planted too late, and we have to start again in the spring. Good thing we’re not dependent on living off the land.
