My Pizza Garden - Looks Like Trouble!
Uh oh! All of a sudden my hot banana peppers look terrible, with withered yellow leaves and spots on the peppers. I am heartbroken! It probably has something to do with the weird orange bug I found hanging onto a drooping leaf. I am planning to pull them tomorrow, after I find my heavy gloves that the bug can't get through. The other "pizza crops" are doing well - I finally figured out what fennel looks like, and the basil is amazingly good. I'm hoping things turn out okay with the tomatoes - they look very healthy right now, but a neighbor told me about a tomato fungus that is on its way and advised me to prespray. My mother was a fantastic gardener and I wish that she was here to give me advice (and lots of help)!
