Jalapeño Rojo Bloggin'

Very nice.

I've got some heirloom tomatoes coming up in my rented garden space at my parents' house. Small yellow sweets and orange pear-shaped ones.

Gardening makes me feel old, but I like it anyway.

VV,

Why on earth does gardening make you feel old?

I guess it's just such a little-old-lady activity . . . but I like it nonetheless. For what it's worth, I also bake and knit and sew, so I guess I'm just a little old lady at heart.

Who happens to listen to The White Stripes.

Uh...I'm old, but not a lady!

Wrestling the tiller, cultivating, hoeing, seeding, weeding, building a fence around it all to keep the squirrels-racoons-cats-alley urchins-starlings-etc. out, and then harvesting, maintenance, continually weeding; and this summer having to water constantly, all in 90+ Virginia heat would kill most little old ladies!!

For me, one of the joys of a vegetable garden is giving my friends, family and neighbors a basket of freshly picked stuff every couple of days.

You ain't old Vestal, you're talented and skilled in things that a lot of young people are not, and that's gonna pay off for you down the road.

That pepper looks pretty good. Last year, a friend gave me lots of peppers. I put them in the freezer, and dried some. I still have plenty. Luckily, she didn't grow as many this year. She said she was holding off as her freezer still has a lot.

To be clear to all: that pepper is not from my garden, I cannot take credit for it.

I will however, be posting pics of both jalapeño's and thai's that are in my garden as they turn red.

Right now, all of mine are still green.

Dr. C does his Friday Crab Bloggin' thing, and I borrowed the idea from that. It's not my pepper and I don't want to be accused of pepper plagerizing.

Sorry if I misled anyone.

Plagerizing peppers is not possible; if so, it would be in the same class as Intelligent Design, so its not possible.

Peppers are sacred and should be available to all. Very democratic, Peppers.
