I like trees, I think most people like trees. Yep I am a fan of the tree. I live in a heavily wooded area, and it is beautiful. The trees in the fall are spectacular. The trees displaying all the different colors of their leaves for all to see. That being said, living in a heavily wooded area is not particularly conducive to gardening. As you all know my garden got off to a slow start this year, now with the hours of daylight getting shorter and the trees looming from all sides, my garden has gone from wonderful growth to the growth that one would equate with a dripping faucet. The peppers are all there, waiting to ripen, but the less sun, the slower the ripening process. In the summer, my garden will get 8 to 10 hours of light a day. That’s not to bad, the problem is that window of 10 hours of light a day only lasts for about 25 days. Then it starts to go down hill fast. Most of my peppers are almost ready to pick, but the super hots are still in the flowering/bud stage. Last year they came in just before the first frost. I hope the same happens this year but the days seem to be getting cooler earlier. Yes I love trees, I also love gardening, the two do not mix well however. I have my fingers crossed that my super hots come in. I will keep you all posted as always… Wish me luck, and lets hope mother nature gives me enough time.
