Bougainvillea in a Pot/First Hot Peppers!
My new interest (now that the backyard is "done") is my var. Scarlett O'Hara Bougainvillea on the front porch in our huge 6.5 cubic foot pot. I'm going to train it as a shrubby bush rather than as a climber. If it doesn't work out, I'll try another variety. Some varieties work better as shrubs than others. We'll see. We also plucked our first hot peppers from the backyard stock tank garden today: one jalepeno, two hungarian wax and one anaheim chile. I'll leave those up to Chad to sample. Ilsa asked to eat one of the "cucumbers". I had to decline her request, and she was mad.
