I don't know who has assaulted my plants.  It could be a bird.  It could be squirrels.  It could be rabbits.  No matter who it was, they have taken things way too far.  Little bastards.  

Last week I was so excited because all four of my tomato plants had maters on them.  I even took pictures to share with you because I was a proud little farmer girl.



My Roma plant also had four maters on it.  That was...until the plants started getting attacked.  No joke.  They not only stole the tomatoes, they BROKE THE PLANTS! RUDE!



They broke them right in half!  I surrender.  I have given up on the tomatoes.  I'm focusing only on peppers from now on.  Yep.  No more tomatoes.  I replaced the two broken plants with a pablano pepper plant and a fajita bell pepper plant.  Check out how well my pepper plants are doing...

There is one pepper formed and A LOT
of buds for new peppers.
My jalapeno plant is going crazy.  I think it's time to harvest.
So many super chili peppers there was no
need for arrows to find them.
My fajita bell pepper plant has one pepper
and a lot of blossoms.
The pablano pepper plants has oodles of blossoms.
The giant pepper plant not only has the one giant pepper,
but it has a new baby pepper growing.

My Roma plant HAD two maters left on it last night...
but when I went out to water it tonight, 
they were all gone.  BASTARDS!

So, take that little ravaging critters, you don't like pepper plants, so alas, that is all I'll grow.  Go find someone else's plants to rape.

To end on a happy note, I just went outside and harvested my unassaulted peppers. 
I suddenly have a craving for salsa and spicy stir fry!

  1. That's so weird that they stole the whole tomato off the plant!

    1. Welcome, Elyse, and thanks for the follow! Yeah, the little twits took the whole thing! I'm expecting them to carry off the planter pot one of these days.

  2. Haha thank you very much for the arrows. I surely don't have green eyes because I definitely needed their guidance

    1. You're welcome, Erin! I'm so glad they helped. Putting them on there was a like a Where's Waldo's pepper game.

    2. I also thought you'd get a kick out of this. My brother, a fellow New Yorker, said I'm going to start looking like a combo of a hillbilly and a New York Puerto Rican with a crop on my terrace.

    1. Thanks! I went out to water them this morning and there are already new blossoms where I'd clipped off the peppers so hopefully I'll have a new harvest soon. My brother said I'm going to start looking like a combo of a hillbilly and a New York Puerto Rican with a crop on my terrace. He's so sweet, right?
