I had already pulled one crop of peppers off of this plant (About five small-to-medium peppers), and, as I started cutting the fruit off, I was actually quite amazed at the haul. I pulled another Ten!
Last year was the first ever I tried my hand at vegetable gardening, but I started too late in the summer to have any results. This year's was my first successful garden.
I ended up with:
- Uncountable hundreds of Roma Tomatoes (these plants will simply not die!)
- About a dozen "German Red Strawberry" Tomatoes
- Two pretty big Watermelons (next year I will try to remember to weigh them.)
- Two Horrible Looking, Twisted, Greenish-Gray, Carrots
- About half a dozen decorative "Jack-Be-Little" Pumpkins about the size of my fist. (I still have two of them that turned out really pretty.)
- Three or four salads worth of Great Lakes Lettuce, Black-Seeded Simpson Lettuce, and Endive (which is correctly pronounced "On-Deeve", by the way.)
- More Swiss Chard than I knew what to do with (I tried a pesto recipe, but it turned out terribly)
- One Artichoke Plant that is still, amazingly enough, alive, even though it has no chance of surviving the winter to produce fruit next spring. There is a reason they grow these in California!
Now, if I only liked Eating peppers!
