Pepper Production

Pepper production is happening here. I wanted to harvest as many peppers as I could before Hurricane Michael comes on shore because we are sure to get wind and rain even here in North Georgia. We are inundated with peppers. I have eight plants growing in raised beds and they continue to produce abundantly. Above is an eight inch deep plastic bin overflowing with carmen and poblano peppers.
A 3 x 8 x 12 inch cardboard box overflying with shishito peppers.
Another 3 x 8 x 12 inch box full of more poblano and carmen peppers and few eggplant.
A small bowl of snack sized tomatoes: juliet and yellow pear. Now what to do with all this produce. I may take a few of these to the farmers market to sell. They are so much better fresh than frozen, especially the shishitos. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Pickled peppers? I am a fairly mild pepper person; I had some that were pickled along with the locally made dill pickles we like. Added a new flavor to the pickles and were delicious.

  2. Hi Suzi, thanks, I already have a bunch of pickles, how many pickles can someone eat. lol

  3. Hi Suzi, thanks, I made some West African pepper soup, recipe coming up tomorrow, very fragrant and delicious.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
