I've never had much bother pepper plants, except the cocker spaniel we used to have would steal peppers from the plants.That quit when I switched to a variety called mexibell, in which the flesh was bell pepper but the seeds and ribs inside had a bit of fire to them.

Grow bags should be great for the purpose. Good idea! Leave them to the neighbors, leave them w/ some passing mutant, or leave them to the packrats. Whatever.

My grandmother specialized in African violets. All kinds. Like you, I followed her lead for a long time.


Gee, I wish I knew where they were from, from whence they came, Sis!
Mom gave me some that were established, and on visits to their lake home I took shoots. My grow room was lined with them! Some originated in Denmark...my Great Grandma.
I had a cagillion plants!
In the home we left in Delano MN, my kids told me that they would someday need a vine to swing through the living room. It was 27x35!
When home from w&@k, I cared for and talked to all of them.
Well, I just had a treasure trove of flashbacks.

You turn.

Anyone else?

Hi Marty!
I guess you have been busy, but good family and critter time is never disappointing! (Albeit tiring)
We are a bit, well a lot, low about a late season start, and missing the GC + many folks/friends in the Midwest.
So, fill us in, Sis. Inquiring minds are a demanding sort.

Do David, I wanna know what colors you had! Did you have any with variegated leaves? You are talking about the houseplant violets with fuzzy leaves, right?
I have 1 I've managed to keep alive, and actually have a baby started from it. Mom used to give me one from time to time, and with my 'green thumb' and all it would still manage to die a slow painful death. So I'm proud I've kept this one for a year and a half and even started a baby off it.

R U a Mutant

Hey all...
We are packing up and going to move up North a little earlier than planned. Jackie's dad is in the hospital so rather then travel back and forth we will leave our host job sooner than planned.

Not getting much information from the SISTERS on dad's condition.

Ooohhmms appreciated.

So far we are still planning on attending the GC...

Hey, Sis!
I wish I could remember all of the secrets my Mom imparted to me. I had two 4-foot shop lights on timers above a large, shallow pan of water that made my babies think they were in Africa.
Every evening, most mornings, and repeatedly on weekends, I would talk to them and caress their leaves.
(Well, I did the same to my potted tomatoes, etc.)
It was true love!
I didnít know the botanical names or origin of my violets. I do know that they loved me back!
Loose, rich soil and humidity (like a jungle) were the only important environment elements. Filtered or gentle light made them thrive.
They would naturally grow in rain forests, so emulating that worked best.
The shoots were in a 10 gallon aquarium, suspended over water on a screen. They soon yearned to be potted!
No variegated leaves, but blossoms were!
Colors? white, purple, blue-purple, rose, pink and yellow.
My, oh my, I could go on and on.....
Letís just say I gave them love!

I couldn’t read what is written on the sail so I began searching for other info on the vessel, Unicorn. It is SO much more than I imagined. It's being used as a leadership training vessel for young women. This unicorn is truly magical!

Thanks for the early morning smiles and belly laughs, Richard.
