My banana peppers were planted late, and they are just now putting out peppers. I haven't even had any yet. This is one of the first. I will be picking it this week. I love to put them on my salad.
My jalapenos did great! One plant put out peppers later than the others. But that's because it just kept growing! It's not huge by any standards, but it is larger than the others. Mike makes these great jalapeno popper things. Slice a jalapeno in half. (canned, pickled jalapenos work, too, and are not as hot.) Scoop out the seeds. Spoon in a little bit of cream cheese. Cover with a raw shrimp. Wrap with a piece of bacon. Grill on the grill or bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the shrimp and bacon are done enough! I love these things!! They are great right off the grill or out of the fridge, cold!!
This is one of my sad (also planted late) straight neck squash plants. I have neglected that end of the garden. All the grass and weeds have grown up around them and my cucumbers. My okra is okay, but I still don't have any okra yet. I planted my crook neck squash early, and thy have fizzled out. That is, the ones that the worms didn't kill. My tomatoes have not faired well, either. Worms got them, too. :(
This is my garden partner. Prissy loves to follow me out to the garden. She hides in the grass, then jumps out and runs down the rows. She also loves to pounce on and eat all the bugs. I have never seen a cat that loves to eat bugs as much as she does. That's why I sometimes call her Silly Cat.
Well, I better get my nose back to the grind stone. It's a wonder I even have a nose left, as much as I keep it there. Why do people say that, anyway? Why would anyone even put their nose on a grind stone? Well, y'all have a good day, and I will see you all on the flip side of blog world.
