A Little Bit of Heat

I picked our first peppers today. Not quite a peck of peppers, but 2 is a good start! We have about 3 dozen tomatoes in varying stages of growing, none of which are red yet. We are hoping it doesn't get too cold before we get a good one. And remind me next year to get much bigger tomato cages, or to build bigger supports. The plants kind of grew out of their cages and are hanging vine-like over the sides...
Don't they look yummy! All green and pretty!

What happens when you plant bell peppers next to a jalapeno plant?

A Bellapeno!

Why did no one tell us this until after the darn things had flowered and were growing little green things? Not cool people! They are curved and lobed at the same time, and will supposedly taste bell pepperish with a little jalapeno heat. I guess we'll know better next summer!

I'm sure they'll taste fantastic anyway. And "bellapeno" is such a creative and fun name!
