Pepper Plant

Some time ago, Tim and I went to a book reading by the author of The Drunken Botanist. (Previously, we had attended a reading promoting one of her previous books, Wicked Bugs.)

At the reading, there was a drawing for several flats of plants discussed in the book. Our ticket number was drawn for one, which included a mint plant, and rosemary plant, and a jalapeno pepper plant. We duly repotted them, and when the weather turned warm enough, set them outside in the backyard where they seem to be doing reasonably well with daily waterings.

Today, while giving the garden its daily watering, I noticed that the pepper plant had a few blossoms in various stages of maturity. They tend to droop down, so I positioned my camera underneath to get a better view.
