Green Peppers to Come

I went to the Farmers Market last Saturday week and I bought some homegrown green peppers. I thought they were beautiful, really just ugly, misshaped, and contorted in a manner one would just never see, one would just not be presented with, in the superchain market. And they are so tasty, full of a flavor, one would not taste from a superchain pepper.

Well, alas, I couldn't eat some of them, they turned soft as their color turned from the dark green to a red. Well what would I do with them? I didn't want to throw 'em out. So I went out in my weed bed cleared a small plot and composted the peppers into the freshly turned weeded soil. Here's hoping next spring I'll have green peppers next to my tomatoes next to my basil.
