July Veggie Garden Update!
Here is the Chinese Five Colours Hot Pepper. Some of the peppers are beginning to change from their first colour of purple to a creamy shade of pale yellow. After that, they will turn pink, red and orange. It will be fun to see them change colors as they ripen! This plant seems to keep growing new peppers, so hopefully we will get a lot of them out of just one plant!
This is the Variegated Fish Hot Pepper with its striped peppers. They start off green with faint white stripes, and they are changing to be green and orange/yellow. I believe that they will end up being orange and yellow when they ripen and are ready to be eaten. It will be interesting to see how these ones turn out! I have two of these plants and they have many peppers on them.
Here is the Cayenne Pepper plant. Just one of the peppers is turning red but it won't take long for the others to turn from green to red. This is the only Cayenne plant that I have as the other one unfortunately died. Should still get lots of tasty hot peppers though!
Lots of Hungarian Hot Banana Peppers, ready to be picked and devoured!
Then, we have lots of tomatoes! Thankfully, none of the tomato plants died when I had to transplant them - very lucky! I am so glad that I moved them out of their previous shady location. Even though we may not get as many tomatoes as we could have gotten had they been in the full sun the entire time, these tomato plants have really grown and have lots of tomatoes growing on them! It may take a little longer for them to mature, but some of the tomatoes are starting to turn red! And that is good, because I cannot wait to make my famous salsa and bruschetta bread!
