This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

today's harvest

harvest 3

a little vegetable humor.... or not....

These are my first yellow bell peppers. Finally. Along with a nice red Anaheim chile, an orange Habanero, and a Giant Belgium and Pink Beauty tomato.

I love it! lol! =)

I am finally getting great peppers... it took all summer for some reason (zone 7). I don't know what I did wrong. Whatever happened, I know have a ton of great peppers. Hmm.

Wow! How big are the bell peppers? They don't look very big, or is the pepper big?

The peppers are pretty good size here. That's an over sized white dinner plate (12 inch diameter). Tomatoes were kinda' small. I'd give you sizes, but we ate everything but the small yellow pepper (its 3.5 inches long) and the habanero chile (just over 1 inch) tonight.

I bet you were thinking the red chile (an Anaheim chile, usually 8 inches long) was a cayenne pepper.

Tonight I skewered the Anaheim, the bigger yellow bell, and one of my garden onions in between marinated chicken pieces and made nice kebabs. Yummy.

HI Jessica,

I had fun looking at your photos on your blog. Watch out for those tornadoes. Sounds scary!

Your peppers sound great! Last year I grew a Burpee pepper mix, like you have this year. It did really well. I started them under lights mid March. Maybe I should grow this mix again next year. Its very nice. I had the hot pepper mix.
