The weather here continues to feel like fall – we had lots of rain at the beginning of last week – and the overnight temps are certainly NOT staying at 50 degrees or above, but some peppers did decide ripen to a beautiful gold.
Bless their hearts.
Seriously, it’s like they took pity on me. I had been looking at all the green peppers (of which there are A LOT) almost daily to see any bit of color (remember, color = ripe and sweet pepper!).
Gee, this is a familiar refrain this year in the garden: first I waited for the beans, then the corn, then the tomatoes (though they’ve gone back into hibernation…), and now the peppers.
Maybe I ought to get a life.
Or at least decide what to have for dinner this week.
Monday- Baked Bean Chimichangas, fresh salsa & chips, green salad
Tuesday- Grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, grilled green beans
Thursday- Our 22nd anniversary (!) dinner out
Saturday- (the big paint day!!)- salad smorgasbord & corn-on-the-cob
Sunday- Garden stir-fry & rice (or leftovers…)
