Pick A Peck of Peppers
Okay, so it’s not exactly a peck of peppers, but my one little jalapeno plant has been producing like crazy. I’ve already picked five peppers, and look how many are ready, or almost ready to pick.
(Immediately after taking the photo, I picked four more peppers.)
The first cucumber is ready for picking, and a smaller one is growing a bit higher on the vine.
The cucumber plant is loaded with blossoms, but so far just two cukes. They grow quickly, so I’m hoping for more.
I’ve already mentioned how well the tomato plants are doing – I’ve already lost track of how many tomatoes I’ve picked, and those plants are still loaded. The only plant I’m concerned about is the red pepper plant.
It’s beautiful, but I haven’t seen a single blossom. Any idea why it’s not blooming? Last year’s red pepper plant did so well that it wasn’t until a month or two ago that I finally finished up the leftover red peppers I chopped and froze last fall.
