Upside-down ~ in a Topsy-Turvy World

Home Inspector



A few weeks ago I did a blog about a Topsy-Turvy Jalapeno Pepper Planter. Here's an update.
So far, so good. If all goes well the next update we will begin to see some blooms. One great thing, if this Topsy -Turvy Jalapeno Pepper Planter works we won't have to worry about the Texas Hill Country white tail deer eating the plants...not unless they can jump to reach the planter that is hanging from the second story baloney.

Life is "good" and Life is "fun" living in The Texas Hill Country.
We are anxious for spring.

Amanda: No it was purchased from Dollar General - Cost $1.00. The link will take you to the original blog.

Rebecca: Ceil uses Jalapeno Peppers in lots of things that she cooks. She says peppers are good for anything that ails you. Just don't rub your eyes after you handle the peppers. Do it once you'll never do it a second time.

Howdy and afternoon Carl and Ceil

Carl and Ceil my friends
, sure sound like y'all pick a mighty handy spot to your Topsy-Turvey Pepper planter. Hopefully the Deers won't learn how to use a ladder or how to fly. I'll be waiting to see some bloom on the plants. 

Have a good one

Dale - I don't think we'll have to worry about flying deer.

Kathy - Thanks for stopping and glad you have had a positive experience. We went back to get another one but they were SOLD OUT.

Carl, what I like is that it seems so much easier to maintain and to keep the bugs away from.  Looking forward to your next post.

Good move, Carl.  I think we will try that with some tomatoes this year.  We don't have deer, but we do have a dog that loves tomatoes....darn dog. 

We are looking forward to spring, too,   But, we have to get through this storm and all of March yet.

Patty: Slow progress but will be worth it in the end if it works. Kinda like closing a real estate deal.

Ron: You do have spring to look forward to and soon I hope.

That should keep those pesky deer away!  I'm surprised they like pepper plants!

Georgina: Yes they love pepper plants, tortillas, veggies you name it.

Dale: I've been running all week and have fallen behind with time. My inspections in San Antonio require more drive time due to traffic

Wayne: Feel like fire and then it can be used to numb pain.

Hey Yolanda, where have you been? You also have a nice weekend. Come back soon.

That one looks like it is doing great, C & C, keep up the good work! Mine didn't make it but my tomato plants in the pots on the patio did great.
