Garden Progress

My little minigardens are growing very well. Yesterday after work I brought them in the house because the 100+ degree weather had really taken a toll on them. After some water and a few minutes in cooler air they perked right up.
Some of my many jalapenos. I think we'll be having some guac soon.
Here are the cayenne peppers.
One of the Anaheim peppers.
The Thai basil is really taking off. I need to start cooking with it. Ignore the two dead plants in the begonias decided very early on that they didn't like Maryland. My sweet basil is also doing okay. I don't put it outside at all. I don't think it could take the sun or the heat. My success with this year's garden has almost given me the confidence to buy an orchid. Almost.

I'm so jealous. Everything looks so wonderful!

And thank you for your words of encouragement about my garden, by the way. However I posted an update on the status of my house plants and let's just say you might want to take your compliment back. LOL.
