He is my first gardening success, although, to be fair:
1. he was already on the plant when I bought it, and
2. Dave has been doing all of the watering.
And even though we know a few Garys, he's not named after anyone in particular. He just looked like a Gary.
It's ironic that I'm so proud of him because I don't eat jalapenos (unless I'm tricked). But he grew to be such a handsome thing. He slowly turned a beautiful bright red. Dave was tasked with eating him, but his conscience won in the end, and he wasn't able to go through with it. Instead, Gary is happily taking a bus tour through Waco with the wind in his hair. It was always his dream to travel.
P.S. I apologize for any confusion for the title of my post yesterday ("this makes three"). Rest assured that the title of that post will be "whoopsie".
