Harvested a big mess of peppers last week. Filled the dehydrator, shared a bunch with our neighbor and the rest will be sliced and frozen. I might try making a fajita mix with peppers and onions and freezing it for quick meals.
today it was eating up some macaroni and tomato juice but then also had some wimpy chili that i put in there so it ended up being more like goulash, but then i added some hot sauce to perk it up and a bit more watery so like a soup, but very good. it was what i needed too after a full day of going up and down ladders.
no, the last time i tried to grow bok choi the groundhogs ate it as soon as it sprouted. for us the green and red peppers, celery, onions and green onions, garlic, beans, carrots, corn, tomatoes, dill if there is any fresh. not much else goes into vegetable soups. i'd like some cabbage here or there but Mom doesn't like it cooked in soups but she will have it once in a while as cole slaw. brussells sprouts and brocoli or cauliflower are ok on certain things but we don't grow them or buy them that often. i like about any vegetable, Mom's the picky one - she just won't eat them so i don't grow them as i'd rather use the space for things we both will eat (and of course beans ). tomatoes are the big crop and we both like those and eat them a lot so it's worth it for the space to grow those.
6 of these lovelies went into the Salsa Party #12: This Year, chili. Wish I was an onion grower, maybe next year.
Family is gobbling up every ripe tomato that I have brought in. It get only this afternoon to harvest any I missed before another frost scare.
