This little greenhouse, placed horizontally, was just the thing to help the butternut squash get going. They quickly grew to touch both sides. Fortunately, the weather warmed up and we could put the greenhouse right way up for some other use.

I considered using it for a cucumber vine (too big), a tomato plant ( too messy) or a Hungarian pepper plant (just right). Actually, I doubt if the pepper plant will ever fill that space, but I hope it will thrive and give us a nice crop all the same. Jim can’t eat them, but I love sweet banana peppers sliced and fried with eggs for breakfast.

Sweet Hungarian Banana Pepper

It’s a bit on the scrawny side. It was the last banana pepper plant at the garden centre.
