Today's produce update
These are the hot peppers I picked just this morning. Three types - jalapeno, yellow banana, and a round red one called "Cherry Bomb". I gave Dean these to take to the office to distribute. I have one more type that is just starting to get red - a long Portuguese red pepper, but the plant only has two on it at the moment. I discovered last year that picking them is the best way to keep the plant producing, and this is a lot more than I can use in one day.
We're now in a spell of dry, hot weather, so I think that next week it'll be Tomato Alley around here. My tomato plants are loaded with tomatoes, but they're all green, and have been for weeks, just getting bigger. Now I think they'll ripen, and then I'll have to get out the canning equipment to try and make use of them. The surplus will go with Dean to feed External Affairs, of course.
