I may have set a new world record. Today, I harvested what is potentially the most expensive bell pepper in history. 🙂
I decided not to leave it on the plant any longer, even though it’s still green. If I waited for it to turn red, I definitely wouldn’t get any more peppers this year. I may not anyway, but at least this way there’ll be a chance.
When you consider the cost of the plant, and the soil, and the pot, this is at least a $10.00 pepper. And a green one, to boot.
I haven’t eaten it yet; I’m saving it for tomorrow.
This gardening season has not gone very auspiciously for me so far. This is the first year I’ve tried to grow anything but flowers, so I know I can’t expect much. And I’m not done; I’m going to try some carrots.
In the meantime, though, it’s back to the farmers’ market on Saturday.
