I thought serranos were pretty mild LOL. I guess it was just the ones that I got from the store. I make a lot of tortilla soup. I usually plop a few jalapenos in it to spice it up. One day I put in a couple of serranos and it didn't have that kick. But then again these were supermarket peppers.
Right now I have growing jalapenos, tabasco, cayenne, and regular green peppers. And my peter peppers
I had habaneros, but they succumbed to the sun before I was able to get the shade cloth up, and they were the only seeds I had. If I look for seeds now I will spend another million dollars LOL. I can't just buy one packet of seeds LOL
Oh my gosh I have a food forest going on LOL. I have a small herb garden with dill, chives, thyme, basil, and sage. Last night I bought all these seeds from etsy focusing on a medicinal herb garden. I have a perfect spot for it. And I think I will make a little step-stone walkway through it.
PEANUTS! I planted three peanut plants. I didn't do my research and I ended up buying spanish peanuts instead of the larger virginia peanuts.
Over the past couple of years and a lot of research, I have found a lot of stuff that is more native to Florida so it is easier and cheaper to grow with no fuss...so I have everglades tomatoes, cucamelons, two mango trees...one Kent and one Haden. Two papaya trees. One has about 8 papayas on it, the other one had one and it fell off. I think it had a disease. I sprayed it with copper and it seems to be doing better. If you don't know anything about papaya trees, you need male and female trees. Both of mine happen to be female, so I have to rely on my neighbors male tree and bees to pollinate. So now I keep planting various flowers that are pollinator attractors, like butterfly weed, calendula, and regular marigolds. OH, um chives, verbena, lantana. I have a gazillion frangipani sticks in pots that just started flowering, plus one established one out front.. I planted some alyssum, perennial peanut and creeping thyme in a dead zone. I think I put out too many seeds there because it is its own little forest now LOL
I have a meyer lemon tree still in a pot, which got its first two lemons the other day and they were growing big. But then Henry ate one LOL Laughing, but not laughing. An orange tree out front, that I am tired of fighting with so I might dig it up and put it out back. It gets flowers, and just had a bunch of oranges on it, but they were pathetic looking. Its not the tree I want in my front yard. I expected more...tree. It hasn't gotten big.
I have a loquat tree in a pot. Maybe I will replace my orange tree with that.
Oh, and three banana trees...
