Let me preface. I am NOT a gardener. I have a black thumb. I do not know what I was thinking.
Let’s call it part hope, part need for a new plant container system. We’ve had some really high winds lately, and since we’re near the top of our building with nothing blocking the wind between us and the sea, things get blown over out there. Also, I love these little pepper plants and just wanted them. I can pretend they’re practical and that I’m going to cook with them, but have you ever tasted my cooking? Let’s just say I’m an uninspired cook. And lazy. I like my flavor pre-packaged.
But look how cute they are! And I have cebolinhos too! Now, not only will my cooking be bad, you’ll have bad breath after-wards too! Don’t you want to come over for dinner now?
At the very least, these heavy planters will keep our small collection of little plants from becoming projectile missiles every time the wind blows. They do look nice out there on our balcony by the sea.
They’re just so dang cute!
I have been known to have the black thumb of death when I touch plants. Wish them luck.
And thank you, my heart, for lugging hundreds of pounds of dirt and two cement planters up here. Te amo.
