So Many Peppers

I picked peppers and tomatoes today. This is the third batch of peppers so far and there are more every time I look. The hot peppers are particularly prolific, as are the aconcagua peppers. Today I picked less than half of the peppers that were ready because I knew I would never be able to eat them all.

The tomatoes so far have been yellow pears and black cherries, but today the first two slicing-sized tomatoes were ripe. It looked like some kind of bug had made holes in one of them, though, so I'll have to see if it's still edible.

There are two or three eggplants that should be ready any day now. They're definitely the prettiest plants in my garden.

Family members, PLEASE go pick some peppers!
