Then, I stopped by the Grange Co-op at the other end of town (near Walmart) where they have more plants than the one near me. Oh... so many more plants! Too bad my foot was hurting (it isn't well yet), or I could have spent much longer there than I was able to. I got two peppers, California Wonder and Golden Summer (a yellow bell). Also, an eggplant, Dusky. I don't eat eggplant, but the plants even without fruit are so beautiful I like to plant them in the garden.
|Golden Summer Pepper - see the lemon cucumbers in the background? Those are the ones that were overgrown, and now doing quite well!|

I put two of the lemon cucumbers in the cucumber bed, and two were left together planted in a Topsy Turvy. I planted the Black Cherry on one too. We'll see how they do, I have yet to see any actual upside down planters that look anything like the photos in the ads! Mostly I see dying and dead plants hanging on porches.
