Here's our just picked bunch of peppers, minus a few Teresa already chopped up for sweet pepper relish. Some of the green ones are kind of small, but we were short on green ones this time, so took young ones too. The different colors make for pretty relish!



Great looking peppers!

Those ARE pretty looking peppers! I'm not sure we'll get any, I purchased some hangers-on late in the season, but they were so root-bound they haven't grown much.

Here's the rest of the (HUGE) sweet onions. We have more than this already in the extra fridge, each rolled in paper towels. When our sweet Bell peppers start to ripen, we'll take ripe peppers, green peppers, and some of these onions to make the Sweet Pepper relish. Boy is it good in any soups, and especially tasty in a big bowl of beans!



Ole Cow Hand.. IF you have the time and if your willing to share. Can you post your recipe for all of those wonderful things you talk about. Such as your Sweet Pepper Relish.. My granny passed away before i could learn from her, My mom sadly is not a good cook she will admit to it. BUT My mom is a heck of a green thumb and i am glad to have gotten that from her...

All of what your showing looks amazing. Being as far north as i am i would need a greenhouse to have the growing season required.. Maybe next year..

I'll have Teresa gather the recipes & scan them & post! Give me a day or 2, as things are more than wild right now.

Teresa got her first ripe cantaloupe from the garden tonight! She's thrilled, and I'm happy for her, but I don't care for them myself. I'm waiting on my Charleston grey watermelons myself! :thumbs:
