It is really satisfying to see something grow. Even more satisfying when you can actually eat the end product of your hard work. Yes, the plant did the growing, but I watered it every day and made sure it wasn't uprooted by stray children (which was the biggest challenge in itself!). So it was pretty fabulous when at last the capsicum that had been growing and getting bigger finally turned red. Red enough to pick and eat.
Yes. It was a good feeling. And it was a delicious capsicum. I am looking forward to more.
Tomorrow, I'm going to use some of the spinach/rocket that is growing along with the basil. Yes.
