Midnight In The Garden Of Bluefin And Elsa


Tomato, Squash, and Pepper!

The Sweetie 100 Cherry tomato, above, will be ready for picking this coming weekend. The Purple Pepper below? might need another week, probably more like two.

Below My Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper seem to be Purpling Up!
Now? I am hoping they pump up to nice and large, sweet little peppers!



Above Speaking of Sweet Pepper? these Sweet Banana Pepper are indeed sweet, not spicy hot! Sweet Banana Pepper and Hungarian Wax Pepper look almost exactly alike, but Banana is sweet, and Hungarian Wax Pepper is very HOT! So, how can you tell the difference when they are growing on the vine? Easy, one Points UP (think HOT HOT HOT on the Scoville meter): Hungarian Wax Pepper, and one Points DOWN (down on the Scoville meter means SWEET SWEET SWEET)!

Below More Sweet Banana Pepper! Somewhat odd, I am growing 5 of these Sweet Banana Pepper plants. I actually do not eat Banana Pepper. I will use some fresh for my youngest, she loves them, and I will pickle some for use later in winter and early spring for her.



Above Sorry for the blurry photo of my Spaghetti Squash. I ahve four of these plants growing and looks like I will get a few of the squash out of them. The Blurry photo, btw? Right as I was about to trigger the shutter, I noticed a flurry of excitement out of the corner of my eye, to left of the garden:


Three of six rabbits, bouncin' and flouncin' by the gardens. They were so cute, the three smaller ones who took off to the left!

By the way, I am still in the middle of the Storm Elsa winds and rains. At some point a rather large limb snapped off a nearby tree, and more rains of course, fell. I imagine there are quite a few waterlogged plants, begging for some dry days. We shall see what the next week brings, but I am hopeful for some cooler, dryer weather!

I bet my PLANTS are too!
