Ol' Man Winter the last few days. I've been checking my plants and bringing them in or putting them in the basement before it gets very cold. I had some pleasant surprises , my daughter gave me this plant for Mother's Day. I've never had any luck with this plant , but I put it in a pot and let it be. The plant is called Hen and Bitties around here and today I found it had 4 bitties (yay). My Mom leaves her's outside year round , but I moved mine to the basement.
My next surprise was my Snake Plant or Mother-In-Laws Tongue as some people call it. My friend who was murdered gave me a potted plant when my mother-in-law died 11 years this Dec., this was one of the plants that was in that pot. I repotted it many years ago and was thinking I needed to repot it again , when I went to bring it in I noticed it was starting to bloom. I've heard they would bloom , but I've never seen one bloom. I was so excited I called my friend's Mom to tell her about it. She started laughing and told me she had brought a Snake Plant home from his house and it was blooming too.
I told her I thought he was letting us know his spirit was still with us , she agreed :0)
I stripped the pepper plants and pickled the peppers , the cayenne produced really well this year. The drought and heat didn't hinder it at all. The jalapenos didn't do as well , but we do have 2 quarts and a 1/2 pint pickled , hopefully that will last until the next gardening season.
What have you been up to this week ?
