The hubs and I decided that we needed to pull ourselves from the couch on Sunday and get out to the garden and do some harvesting. I headed straight for the 74 tomato plants and he v-lined for the peppers. I don't blame him. The tomatoes are a mess, sagging, droopy, all over the place mess.
This is what he harvested. These plastic looking, brightly colored, mild to super hot peppers. My pepper loving 11 year old took a generous bite out of one of the long hot peppers trying to be tough. I think he consumed an entire 1/2 gallon of milk after his tough guy front was knocked over.
Needless to say, plastic or not, I'm glad to see a good pepper harvest. Our wet weather prevented this up until this point. Good things are worth waiting for.
Speaking of good things. Besides a boat load of tomatoes, I harvested close to 11 lbs of green beans. Holy moly, right!
I am a busy mother of two who doesn't have time to check the PH balance of my soil. I believe in try, try again. If it doesn't work the first time, there is always tomorrow. I love passing on what I have learned as well as the fruits of my labor.
