Peppers, Peppers and...

We returned from our annual vacation to Sedona/Jerome area to find Jalepenos finally coming in! I also came home to a mailer packet full of seeds. Several kinds of Peppers, Tomatillos, melons, and more. Some to plant now, some for later in the year, and various types of lettuce specifically for the indoor Aquaponics system I plant to work on this summer.

The next day a friend took me to Gardeners' World east of us on Baseline, and I picked up 6 Banana Pepper starter plants that have…

Making Coffee more sustainable

So I live with 2 coffee addicts while I myself am a recovered addict. I used to drink multiple a day, but these days I don't drink coffee at all, and only treat myself to the rare caffeinated tea. Unfortunatley when our coffee mate broke they replaced it with a single serving gadget. It came with a little reusable cup that you can put the coffee grounds into and reuse time and again, but they prefer the pre packaged coffee grounds in tiny plastic cups. So we decided to recycle them. The…
