Good to know that's it's safe to use cayenne. I'm about to transplant 4 heirlooms into our backyard garden - the chipmunk is already pounding on the door, wanting to know when dinner is being served.
Though I would post a pic of my teeny-tiny Pizza Garden plot at our local community garden. The Big Beef is doing well (3 small green tomatoes and quite a few flowers; the Sungold is starting to perk up, with a few flowers on it as well; the Brandywine is taking its sweet (I hope) time. The 2 Genovese Basil plants are well established, and have donated to the last 2 bakes. I'll plant garlic this fall.
The second shows around 2/3 of the planted area in a 1 acre community garden. My wife and a few other avid gardeners spent over 2 years trying to find a location in our town (I think the word "no" is used more often here than in any other place I've lived). I get to tend a 4x24 plot of tomatoes and basil for our community food bank.
Can't wait to see what we can produce here.
