The Peppers Keep On Coming
Wednesday, 12 Sep 12
I planted a pepper patch this summer in June, planted 8 jalapeno, 4 banana, 4 habanero, 4 green chili and 4 Tabasco. This is the first year that I have planted hot peppers so don’t really know much about them. A lesson to learn is only plant two of each never four, they just keep on multiplying. I have given them away, froze them, pickled them and even tried to eat some but they are way too hot for me except the banana and the jalapeno. I have made salsa and even tried a new recipe it is a no water bath with a hot brine, really good. Next year only two plants even if it is the sweet ones that I like, I have saved plenty of seeds to swap with. So who ever wants some seeds let me know. I even have a mystery pepper that came up in the middle of the patch between the banana and the jalapeno. It is red when fully ripe and hotter then a jalapeno but not as hot as a orange habanero. I have saved seeds from this one also. Here it is September and we have peppers every other day to pick, thank goodness for my next door neighbor who loves hot peppers he is getting them. I have sweet potato’s and jack beans and broccoli and spinach left in the garden, I just planted garlic yesterday. Now is the time to get all the weeds and tomato vines and green beans vines up and out to the berm. This picture was taken in June, would like to add a new one but can’t.
