plants growing in pots on windowsills have a shelf life. All were doing well. They were starting to put out blossoms. And then.....they keeled over and died.
I noticed all was not well when I saw that the blossoms would start to open and then they just withered and fell to the floor. And the leaves began to curl up and fall off. And those plants standing tall sort of leaned over and gave up.
But I had fun trying to grow veggies in my window sills so it wasn't a total loss.
Oh...and my harvest? One bean. It was delicious.
So now I am cleaning out the pots and putting them away until spring. It gets too cold in the window sills in winter for plants to survive. Come April or May I will plant things that do not need blossoms to produce food, like lettuce and spinach and beets and maybe celery.
I have one pot of bell peppers that is still healthy. I will continue to care for that one just for the fun of it. Like I have said before, it takes very little to keep me entertained.
