My Red Peppers

Earlier this year, Mom bought me two tomato plants, two basil plants, and a pepper plant. Over the summer I had an abundance of tomatos and basil... which I absolutely loved. Just one of the plants had 44 tomatos on it at one time. I wish I would have thought to take pictures.

Anyways, my pepper plant was slow going but started to produce peppers late. I had a bunch of peppers growing, they just hadn't started turning red yet when it begin to get real cold at night. I decided to bring the planter indoors. I figured, with all the sunlight I get through my many large kitchen windows, they should continue to grow and ripen. So far so good!

My most recent picks...
these were ready last Wednesday.

But.... with this great idea, there is a downfall.

~ Enter Little Missy Bug ~

She gets up there digging and throwing dirt around, then she chases what's on the floor... spreading it from one side of the kitchen to the other. What a mess! I can't keep up with it. She must be having a hayday while I'm at work!
