Remember José Jalapeño on the Deck? I wanted to give you a José update…
Since I last posted about José’s babies, he continued to live happily at the deck door. Once the wrath of Old Man Winter no longer threatened José, I went shopping and bought José a much larger home. Being a family man, he was running out of room in his old house. His roots were getting stronger and he needed more room for his growing family. I also got him some high quality potting soil for the vital nutrients to produce all of those babies. With all the rain this summer, I have only had to water José once. He’s growing taller each day and his a fertile turtle! Producing all kinds of baby jalapeños without any assistance from me.
I had to feed him yesterday. With all the growing and producing he is doing, he was about to starve to death and his beautiful green leaves were yellowing a bit. When I checked on him this morning, the food is already working wonders and he’s back to doing what he does best, making jalapeños!
Here’s a little video of his new home and progress:
We were able to enjoy one of the jalapeño babies when I made Mexican Zucchini Boats last week and hope to enjoy some jalapeño poppers soon!
