Friday PhotoEssay

Friday already! Of course there’s lots of peppers, but also a few other pretties here and there.

The Yummy Peppers are finally producing. For some reason, they just take awhile to really start producing. It’s a good thing I got this picture early, because the Master Gardeners ate these up like candy. They are really sweet!

This is just a cool picture….a cucumber beetle on the flowers of a Root Beer Agastache plant. I love the colors and the contrast. Apparently the cucumber beetles like rootbeer flavor too!

We had a pretty good haul from the two purple bell pepper varieties this week (Purple Beauty & Merlot). They are a little smaller than I would like, but I think they are normally smaller than what you would see in the grocery store.

The morning glories are really showing off right now. They are an invasive pain, but they are also really beautiful.

Better late than never, right? The Chocolate Habanero plants are FINALLY budded. I just hope we get some ripe peppers before it gets too cold.

Have a great weekend!
