Green Peppers

Here are some of my green peppers. When you get ready to pick these beauties there are a couple of things to keep in mind.

1.) Pick when they are bigger than a baseball but smaller than a softball.
2.) Green peppers will turn red if you let them stay on the plant longer
3.) Unlike squash and cucumbers, you may want to use clippes or a knife to detach so that you do not harm plant
4.) Peppers stop producing flowers when they reach their maximum weight. So the plant can tell how much it can hold. If you want the plant to continue to produce flowers, don't let it get too heavy.

I actually used some of my peppers in a yummy meal tonight and hope to get pictures and recipe posted tomorrow.

What's growing in your garden?
