Garden is finally producing

Postby Widowmaker » Wed Jun 24, 2020 8:57 am

Planted our garden about a month later than normal this year because of the cold and then wet weather. It’s been a rough year at work with overtime and other projects around the house dominating my time, but we are finally picking a few things. We’ve picked a handful of squash and zucchini and some peppers, hopefully tomatoes and cucumbers in the next week! My partner in crime spends a lot of time with me out there and is really proud of it! Lol

Already got quite a few container cukes.

Liana Asian long beans have started. Great variety of yard longs.

Scorpion peppers and i got tons like this atm on 7 plants.

Death Spiral from Baker Creek seeds. Really cool looking pods.

This variety of rocoto does great here. Nearly ever flower on mine last year produced a pod. Great tasting pepper too.

If you like cayennes..Look no further. Never seen one produce like Joes Long Cayenne and pods are huge.

(Chee Wah Lee) Negro from southern Mexico. Ripens to a brown. Used mainly for a localized Oaxacan type of mole.

Antep Aci Dolma (Spicy bell from Turkey). About jalapeno hot. Just a awesome super sweet bell pepper when ripe. I dry the extra pods i cant use. The powder is like spicy sugar its so sweet.

I will have to try those cayennes next year. Do you dry them or use them fresh? I don’t plant many of the hotter varieties because we just don’t use anything hotter than jalapeños in our cooking. Here’s one of the hauls from this week. I planted Anaheim’s and tomatillos (which haven’t ripened enough to be picked yet) for the first time and we have started using the Anaheim’s a lot when cooking.
