That certainly describes the sweet peppers that are now being harvested from the garden. The plants are getting huge. They are so loaded with fruits, they're toppling their tomato cages and branches are breaking off from all the weight. They are also blossoming profusely, promising a continuing supply for as long as the weather allows. I have two 1-gallon bags stuffed with sliced peppers, and one 1-gallon bag stuffed with diced peppers in the freezer. I know that will be enough to get me through the winter (Mr. Granny is not fond of peppers). I have kept the kids supplied to the point where they just won't take any more. The youngest son is contemplating buying a freezer, because even though he loves peppers and eats them like candy, even he has his limits. Now he accepts them, but gives them away to his neighbors. That's fine with me. As long as somebody enjoys them, I enjoy giving them away.
When the tomato cages began toppling under their weight, I had to pound in a few heavy stakes to hold them upright. The yardstick on the left, shows just how robust the plants are at about four feet in height.
This plant lost an entire branch from the weight of four big peppers, but is still loaded with ripening fruits.
Yesterday's 4-1/2 pounds of sweet peppers went home with son John, as well as the 3-1/2 pounds of Fortex pole beans and the bowl of broccoli side shoots. I also gave him two of the butternut squash. I kept the parsnips, and ate them for dinner last night. I served them with.....what else? Stuffed peppers!
