Here’s a pic of the Giant Marconi peppers. It’s my favorite sweet pepper, tangy and sweet. I picked one yesterday and grilled it with eggplant and chicken. This morning I picked the first pimento pepper, they are sweet and thick-walled and great with tomatoes and cucumber.
These are the paprika peppers, very large this year. I bought the plant at the farmer’s market and will be back for another one next year. These will go in the dehydrator.
And here’s the red hot cherry peppers. I’ve read these are good for pickling.
Tomatoes are really coming on. The brandywine especially are very good. The ones in the picture are German Queen. I’ll probably go back to raising at least one Supersonic F1 tomato next year. It’s just been a very good robust plant for me that produces excellent tomatoes from mid July to fall. And I’ll plant one heirloom, probably Cherokee Purple.
The lavendar touch eggplant is about four feet tall. Good thing the tomato plant on it’s north side is almost seven feet tall. It has completely outgrown the fairytale eggplant that was seeded at the same time. The fairytale plant is a little over a foot tall. Probably the last year for that variety although it is good on the grill.
I put some produce in a cooler for the delivery person. I know it’s a long trip to the middle of nowhere and it’s usually their last delivery of the day, so a little reward is in order.
