  1. What a wonderful harvest!

    • Hi Kathy,
      They are quite grand and how I wish I could take credit for them. Alas, but I cannot. However, I am a frequent recipient of their goodness. I can give of my flowers in return but I think I get the better deal. 🙂
      Thanks for dropping in to say hi.

  2. Lovely harvest. 🙂 I hope you don’t mind, but may I ask what kind of peppers are those that follow the green bell peppers? Somehow, the nursery misnamed the pepper plants that I bought and instead of me getting bell peppers, I got peppers like those in your picture. Thanks. 🙂

    • I dont mind at all. They are called “banana peppers” and are from the chili pepper family. At this color they are very mild. I hope you like them. We enjoy them very much.
      Thanks for your visit and comments, Imelda.

  3. Thank you very much. 🙂 I fried it in olive oil and garlic – following some recipes for similar looking peppers. Yeah, it was a good side dish. 🙂

    • Well, you can never go wrong with fresh peppers sauteed in olive oil and garlic. I think they are sweeter than the green peppers, a very nice flavor.

  4. You have a green thumb that makes everything you plant grow beautifully.

  5. wonderful harvest. We have terrible snail problems and they just love peppers.

  6. “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”
    ~ Albert Einstein – would be nice, if he is right with this …

    • Yes, it would be nice if all adhered to this. I think the grand idea he was communicating is to strive in the reality that we do know, to be ever growing, ever learning, to never stagnate. How much imagination sits stifled if one ceases personal growth!

  7. Very nice! Last year we grew tomatoes and peppers too and also eggplant and pumpkins. This year, we went with the okra, some purple-hulled peas (which the heat baked but are still producing), carrots and watermelon. We’re still experimenting to see what we can manage. The peppers are amazing but those are nice cucumbers too! I think next year we will try those.

    • I never knew okra blossoms to be so beautiful. I learned something new.
      It’s all a lot of work, but the results are quite satisfying. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Beautiful photos! Wow, you have a real gift for photography, that’s for sure.

    • Thanks. I keep a camera with me at all times. I love photography, especially when I find something that goes along with the writing. Fun!

  9. What a great crop. I can nearly taste those tomatoes from here – they look so tasty.

  10. Brilliant post! And those vegetables look delicious. I wish I could grow vegetables that look like that. (It’s kinda hard to do with nothing but concrete in the front and back, though.)
