(For some reason blogger keeps turning this picture to a portrait orientation, even though it is supposed to be landscape...sorry it looks a bit odd.)
Last spring, I planted a few things in the garden in the hopes of growing some of my own veggies. I am notorious for killing whatever I plant, and I was ecstatic when my pepper and tomato plants did not die. However, as the summer went on and others were harvesting juicy tomatoes and spicy peppers, I was getting no fruit at all on my tomato plants and dwarfed, thin peppers that were good for nothing other than throwing over the brick wall behind our alley. (I got quite good at this!) The plants themselves continued to grow and especially the tomato plants have gotten huge, still without fruit. Then the strangest thing happened. Suddenly, the tomatoes flowered. I kept watering and now I have many growing green tomatoes on my plants!! My peppers took off too. I got a bunch of yellow mild peppers and my bell peppers are large and green right now. I am going to let them sit for a bit longer in hopes of getting them to be red before I harvest them. I just hope that now that the nights are getting cooler, my tomatoes ripen before our first frost. It got down to 44 last night, so there may not be too much time. Anyway, check out the yellow peppers I picked last week.
I mixed them with some chicken and these other yummy veggies for a great stir fry that my whole family loved!
Anyway, I guess it is true what they say, "Better late than never!"
