I lamented here a long while ago about how I have the opposite of the green finger. For a long time (years even), I was not even capable of growing a plant or even help a full grown survive a few days.
But that changed last year and I grew some bell peppers indoor. Now when we moved earlier this year to an apartment with balconies that got abundant sunshine, the peppers thrived. And we harvested more than 15 small-ish yellow bell peppers from two plants.
Well, all good things have to come to an end, right?
Thanks to the heat and humidity of Dubai’s summer (which has just started, mind you), my plants are scalded and now infested with some whiteflies. I have tried hosing them off with mild soap water. I found them just last Sunday, and within a week most of my leaves are shrunk and falling down. And the peppers have stopped growing as well.
From what I read online, there is no more saving them. So I guess that is it for this year’s contaner gardening. But at least I didn’t kill them this time, and this won’t be the last of my attempts with plants.What is happening on your side of the globe? Do you garden?

What I read this week
I read Love in Colour: Mythical Tales from Around the World, Retold by Bolu Babalola this week. It was a different genre for me and it took me a while to get used to.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.
What I watched this week
I watched “Chemical Hearts” on Prime this week. I also watched a couple of episodes of “Two and a Half men”. Talk about a poorly aged show, right?
