"Do the green pepper crawl"

Have you ever seen so many peppers? Not me! At least not in my garden!
They are sooooooo big. Let me tell ya I have big hands and they are as big!!!!!

I have never had this many (I have already frooze several and used many for cooking) and it has been years since I have even had a few. Last year the ones I planted didn't even have a bloom on them. The year before there were no plants around anywhere. So I decided to make up for it this year!! Good plan huh? Most of these are actually red or yellow ones but they couldn't hang any longer to turn colors. I will chop these and freeze them with my foodsaver and have them ready for chili and many other dishes!!! Hey already chopped too!!!

I just frooze 32 ears of corn and my Mom is going to bring me a bushel of peaches tomorrow. I also have 1/2 bushel of cucumbers to put up and a mess of beans to break and cook. And to think people ask me what I do with myself now that I am in retirement!!!!!!! They just need to come hang out with me one day ;-)

Look at those peppers! I've picked one so far and I was really proud of it. lol. I've been busy with beans and corn too. You get stuff canned/frozen then it's time to pick over the row again and do it all over.
