TIME FOR SOME HOT PEPPERS !!!
They certainly took their time, but the plants are producing some wonderful chiles. My favorites this year are the tri -color cayennes.
Pictured are the Cats Eye, Red Cayenne and the new Orange Cayenne! The yellow and orange seem to be very fruity before the heat.
The warm weather is supposed to continue so we should have good time to harvest MORE PEPPERS AND TOMATOES !
The only varieties that have finished are the Sungold Cherry and the Jimmy Nardellos.
If the fall seasons continue to be long and warm, we will be doing second later plantings of Sungolds, Shishitos and Nardellos. And even throw in some Padrons!!!
APPLES – The guys are still getting second harvest from several varieties and we still have the Blacks and the Pippens to go. As we said before, volume is down , but quality is up!!!
