SSFC – watermelon and peppers (not together)

I am still picking and picking peppers.

Click on the this badge to link to the other participants and see what they prepared this week!

But I am also enjoying some other local things like watermelon.

I picked up a watermelon from Miss Scarlett’s and we ate for several day. It was so colorful and juicy. My desk is piled high with paperwork right now and I can’t seem to lay my hands on the notes I took about where this watermelon is from. I believe it was from a farm in Fredericksburg, TX (70 miles from me)

The peppers are still growing, and growing even faster after a nice rain.

I have been chopping and sauteing a combination of peppers and onions (from the spring harvest) then freezing them for later use.

If you click on the SSFC badge at the top of the page you can see and read about what the other participants are doing with local foods this week.

Sincerely, Emily

    Those peppers look gorgeous! You’ll be enjoying those throughout the winter. 🙂

    I can’t wait to get sticky with watermelon juice on a hot day. There is nothing more summery than sticky watermelon cheeks after several slices. Alas…it appears that we have reverted to winter for the rest of the week. Not complaining too much as Brunhilda (wood burning stove) is back on in force and the garden is getting watered for free but that watermelon looks mighty fine…

    • Hi Narf77, The watermelon was good. So nice on a hot summer day. I know your warmer days are just around the corner and Brunhilda will have a rest, but there is nothing like free rain for the gardens and trees. We could use some of that right now, but it looks like I will have to go out and water (from the rain barrels)

        We are in the process of racing about like chooks with our heads cut off finding ways to collect the spring rain. The more of our plants we get into the ground and heavily mulched the better. In the ground they have thermal mass and if I can get ground covers spreading all over the place its green mulch so many processes…so little time! 😉
