Quite a small harvest this week after a few in a row of bountiful harvests. Not complaining, though, certainly.
I finally procured a Red Beauty Bell Pepper that wasn’t half rotted or half green or torn open by the birds. Something started to do damage to it, though, over the weekend. I am glad I was able to cut it from the plant. Makes me sad because I have no idea when the next flowers will start popping up, on the plant!
The Fish Peppers produced another wonderful harvest of red peppers. I am going to make some hot sauce this weekend and give it to people as Christmas presents, I’ve decided. I’ve already found hot sauce jars and added them to my Amazon wishlist. If you have a hot sauce recipes you’ve made before, please leave it in the comments. Thanks!
Lastly, the Boston Pickling Cucumber plant is starting to fade away. I think I drowned the roots, which was a learned lesson in my Kratky method hydroponics experiment. I saved a couple dozen seeds to share with people, over the Fall and Winter. I might grow a few of them again next year, depending on how the pickles turn out.
I made three jars of refrigerator pickles, and I look forward to enjoying them in a few days with my lunches. Nothing like fresh pickles!
After the success of the Boston Pickling Cucumber, I am heavily considering going to see what is left at Lowe’s. It’s late August, but I think I’ll be able to get a growing season into mid-October… We’ll see.
