Looking good for a double batch of sweet pepper relish!  We only put out 6 sweet bell pepper plants, and here is today's 1st picking!  Wow did they do great!  We have all the sweet onions which matured much earlier in the fridge, waiting on the peppers.  With the onions, you wrap each with a paper towel to prevent them from touching, then place in the fridge where they will keep for months.  Sweet onions don't keep as well without refrigeration.  This is an example of the size, and remember, I have big hands.  This many peppers will make about 20 pints.  We have enough onions for another 10 pints at least when we get more peppers.

 Peppers are fresh picked, so still dirty from last nights 1 1/2" of rain.

I'm not a big onion or pepper eater, just as flavor additions to recipes, but when put together as relish, it is KING for soups, and to die for in a big pot of beans!

Looks yummy. My wife did our first batch of salsa last night. Everyone lines up for it, but no one wants to help prepare it.

I'll get it from Teresa & post it, and not a family secret, just one she found online a few years ago.  It's a goodun, so we never looked for another recipe.

Last year's onions were much bigger even!

Daniel those peppers are making my mouth water. The relish sounds delicious. Our pepper plants started great but some sort of fungus or blight got all the peppers when they were about 1" in diameter.

May have been corn borer.  They get inside the stalk, bore up through the stem of the peppers, & causes it to rot & fall off.

Could be, but we are far from any corn fields. I'm not sure how far the borers can spread beyond corn fields. I know we don't have any potato bugs here ..yet!

European corn borers are everywhere.  After all, they got here from Europe!

Your onions are unbelivable :thumbs:  Every year I grow onions and at best 1/2 that size , heck last year it was dry around here and some onions didn't look much bigger then when they where planted ! You mentioned that other years where bigger so it's not the extra rain that made them so big,, maybe cow poop ? lol
