Silver lining

We have 10 pepper plants in the basement in front of the east window overwintering until spring. I had read somewhere that they are actually perrenials grown as annuals outside their native area. The thought was to get extra early harvest by putting them outside, full grown, instead of new transplants.

Well, we had 10 anyway.

They are infested with white flies. Not enough attention was paid, and the area was not quite right for healthy plants.

So the hens and ducks have fresh greens this week.

So we start from scratch, and this year we will try again. With a fan. And better light.
