Peppers

This is the first year that I’ve had success with peppers.  The one drawback, planted seedlings in May, and its mid September and they are just starting to ripen!  Am not into green sweet peppers; not keen on the taste and definately don’t like how they make me feel!

Anyway, there are some great cayennes, both red and orange bells, some nice anaheims (one of the last of the spaghetti squash hanging over them), and a variety of sweet peppers that looks like the anaheims. Its a mediterranean variety that I thought might do well here in the upper desert.  Next year am going to get these started earlier in the garden with wall o waters and hoops, and/or, keep at least one plant going in the greenhouse.

don’t worry about them not getting ripe before first frost, they will get dried and used as soupstock seasoning if nothing else.
