Good lord. So many bell peppers to use up!

Harvest Monday, July 29, 2013

This is the exact problem I wanted to find myself in. Only I had expected the Red Beauty peppers to be a bit bigger. This group has been the size of mini bell peppers, but they’re weighty, definitely. All of the peppers are going to be stuffed and roasted this week. I am incredibly excited about it. I’ve been pinning various recipes, for the last couple weeks.

A ton of peppers came off the plants, this week. The Kratky Method hydroponic bucket produced two cucumbers that I decided to pick and sample.

The cucumbers are only a few inches long, but they still tower over the small peppers.

I love the striped Fish peppers. They’re taste is fantastic. I look forward to sharing out their seeds with people that like peppers with a little bit of heat. They taste a step down, in terms of heat, when compared to jalapenos, in my opinion.

Interesting. I read that fish peppers were more like Serranos for heat so I’ve stayed away from them. I’ve heard they are very good.

Ooh! I would love to try your seeds! Your peppers are all beautiful even if they aren’t too big!
