Home Economics 101

Welcome to the Home Ec Section. Matters of the family sometimes bring joy and other times bring grief. But it is never trivial: Family matters! Feel free to discuss topics such as the sanctity of marriage; the awesome responsibility of raising children; the struggles of communication problems; the grief of losing a loved one; or anything else that relates to the home and family. However, due to the more personal nature of this section, I ask that you would be especially thoughtful of the readers' feelings. My earnest hope and prayer is that the discussions in this section will help families grow in the love of Christ.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

  • I started growing peppers.

    I've been putting them in pots and growing them. It takes a little bit of care every day to really get it. So far, I'm growing big berthas, lunchbox peppers, habaneros, bell peppers, and poblanos. I picked three big berthas two days ago and one had a hole eaten through it. I have no idea what got it. But at least the others are okay. The habaneros are growing the best right now. There are a lot of them on the plant, but they're not orange yet, so still waiting there. The other plants are going more slowly and barely starting to produce. I've especially had to put a lot of TLC with the poblano plant since it was sick and yellow. It's doing better now, but has no peppers on it yet.

    I'll get pics at a later time.

    I love peppers. And pepper. Even coursrly ground black pepper. And they do pretty good in the Vitamin C department.

      Wonderful. We have some peppers which are coming along very well . We did not grow chillies this year as we had a glut last year - we even had to give some away. But they were gorgeous - really fiery. I made some chilli relish - just oil and mustard seed - but somewhat "atomic". I expect you know this tip but when watering they prefer slightly warmed water rather it coming straight from the butt or whatever water saver you use.

      N.B. The hole might well be caused by molluscs. Look under the pots or any nearby stones.

      Good luck
