A few weeks ago I was lamenting the sad state of my veggies. It seemed as though nothing was going to do very well. I was right about the onions and the lettuce. The lettuce we've managed to get two pickings off of and it looks dreadful already, I'm not holding out hope. The onions I haven't totally given up on. The tomatoes have done about what I expected, I've had enough so far to make two batches of fresh salsa and I see two more coming up over the next days into the weekend as a bunch of them are turning. I'm not sure I'll get much more beyond that though, the plants themselves look dreadful and we aren't getting any new blossoms. Oh well.
The real surprise has been our banana peppers. We got these in so late that I didn't expect much to begin with, and then the weather certainly didn't help matters. 3 of the plants struggled along for a while and then all of a sudden everything took off. We had tons of blooms and peppers started to appear. The first few peppers were small though, but big enough for my salsa recipe. However, over the past week or so, a bunch of these have taken off, and today I managed to make a decent harvest!
