The Great Plotnik

Wednesday, July 24, 2013


The Padron peppers are booming this year. It's got to be the extra heat, or maybe the loving care (and extra fertilizer) that they get due to their clever positioning in big, black tubs on the back deck. This is probably it, seeing as the tomatoes planted next to them (Stupice, Early Girl, Sun Gold and a nameless hanging variety whose seeds somehow got into our luggage when we were leaving Barcelona) are doing equally well.

The secret to growing anything in Saint Plotniko this year has something to do with sun but everything to do with wind. The tubs on the deck are protected from those gales we've had along with the extra heat, whereas the same plants in the rear garden, planted at the same time, are getting battered and dry out quickly. 

Get ready for tapas mis amigos.

Congrats on nailing the heat this year! Sadly, you will likely get more opportunities in the future.
