Heat with Flavor

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.
