I found a ROTEL tomatoes copycat recipe on the Internet, so I gathered up some tomatoes and a variety of chili peppers and canned a batch. I just love this photo, with jalapeno, Black Hungarian, Bell and Iko Iko peppers!
As you can see here, my peppers are right on schedule! These are Serrano peppers, and I look forward to another great crop! Last year, I had so many Serranos I was practically shoving them into open car windows at the local Fred Meyer store.
I have a TON of these beautiful pepperoncinis coming on. I bought them from Burpee on a whim and they are growing into beautiful three-foot-tall pepper bushes just LOADED with peppers.
These are Candlelight Hot Pepper plants from High Mowing Seed (Capsicum anuum). These will feature upright clusters of brightly colored 1-inch hot peppers that turn from green to yellow to orange to fire red.
I noticed that the deer trimmed all the tops off of my pepperoncini pepper plants. They have done this in the past with other pepper varieties (jalapeno, volcano, etc.).
The jalapeno and pepperoncini peppers are bursting out of the cold frames! My peppers always do VERY WELL in cold frames as it help compartmentalize the heat.
HUNDREDS of jalapenos, like this one!
I have a lot of friends who tell me they have no luck with peppers and onions here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m not sure what the problem is, as I’ve always had great luck with them.
