Our homegrown chili pepper
We planted forty bushes of green chili pepper (sili for sinigang) in the empty lot in front of our home and used vermicomposting. After three weeks we started harvesting two to five fully grown chili peppers per bush daily. Around one hundred pieces a day. We have been harvesting daily (!) for a month and a half now. Since we can't have sinigang everyday we have been giving away the chili peppers to friends and family. Chili peppers sell for more than eighty pesos a kilo.
