Summer’s End

Colendar full of colorful sweet peppers.

This is the last of the pepper harvest.

You know it is the end of summer when the last of the veggies goes in the freezer. It was a better year for peppers this year than last, the plants were healthy and vigorous, but I think the rainy weather cut the yields a bit. The hot peppers flopped because the soil stayed too wet. I need to find another place for those next year.

All that’s left now is Kale, Swiss Chard and Collards. There will be some great soups this fall! Lots of herbs left, also. I’ll need to dry some of those and maybe make some Tarragon and Rosemary Vinegar.
