​As summer progresses, we continue to water, weed and tend all these pepper plants. The landscape fabric saves much of the weeding time. The birds take care of pest control for us, as they walk under the plants snagging the pests for lunch. We seem to have a security detail of hummingbirds as well. I did mention we live in a birdcage, right? As the flowers and vegetables come into season, we harvest them and make our different sauces and jellies right in our on-site Food Processing Facility, located ideally, between the garden and the house! ​
