The peppers have slowed down, but aren’t done yet. Just the other day a purple bell pepper joined some carrots and other veggies for a lunch saute.
In making room for new fall veggies, it was time to pull some old timers.
Of course, once I sowed the next round of carrots, it started raining. Forget rain dances, if you need it to rain at your house just have me over to sow some carrot seeds! (The last four times I’ve sown carrots now, it’s rained long and hard within days.)
I didn’t pull all of the carrots though. Some are still small enough to make a late appearance on my plate, and others I’ve let go wild to both see what happens and collect seed. Like these two:
Your carrots look great!
Thank you! It was worth five years of learning how carrots won’t grow 😉
I know, some much in the garden is done–but so much left to do! Robotic voice–MUST GO PICK TOMATOES!
So it goes 🙂
Ummm…I love those peppers. Can’t get the carrots to grow yet–I’ll be over for dinner soon.
Keep trying! This is my fifth year trying carrots. Last year I got one thumb-sized and a bunch of greens for the compost
Bell peppers are the best. My kids eat them like apples.
I first learned of the existence of bell peppers because of a kid at summer school eating one like an apple at lunch each day. They’re so tasty!
Speaking of apples, let’s compare. The apple (known for its Vit C and Vit A content), comes nowhere close to green or red bells. Vit C? 10g, 120g, and 190g for same amounts of apples, greens, and reds respectively. Vit A? No comparison. Peppers are in another league.
It’s not an apple a day, it’s a PEPPER a day! So go ahead. Eat one. Like an apple. 🙂
With how apples upset my stomach, I am all over those statistics =D
