More Tragic Garden Tales

I had to share this sad, sad gardening story from Cathy in Ephrata, Pennsyltucky. Seems to be continuing this summer's "Garden Frustration" theme.

She writes:

I’ve been watching one single red hot pepper growing slowly for the past month, dreaming of the day when I would harvest it, add some of my homegrown garlic, and have a lovely pasta dish.

Until yesterday …

Sabra [14] was at the house all day. I came home and she said “that hot pepper from the garden was REALLY hot.” She had picked it and eaten it raw.

So now I wait for another baby pepper to ripen …
