The other night I had a mad craving for some jalapenos and pepperoncini peppers. Then I remembered a science project I had as a child in the third grade growing bell peppers, which grew most of the way to preparing large green peppers before being destroyed by aphids... who then proceeded to destroy my ant farm shortly after. I'd really like to start a garden of some sort, but the lack of a yard living in an apartment kills that idea. I suppose we could try buying a few clay pots, or experiment with growing vegetables hydroponically somehow.
My oldest brother use to grow the prettiest little green and purple marijuana plants this way. I remember how he'd grow them outside in the colder months, which stunted their growth, but forced them to produce more of those magical little crystals. Ever since then, the idea of growing plants, any kind of plant, has fascinated me. I have had several neighbors in the past have huge success with tomatoes and even strawberries. It all looks so easy from an outside perspective, but I heard of tricks ranging from the type of fertilizer used to the phase of the moon having drastic effects on the plants end product.
So what kinds of things do you grow at home, and what techniques do you use?
