Green Pepper, Orange Pepper

I have taken the plunge and picked the pepper, all 248g and 30cm girth of it – an astonishing creation, given that it has not received any special attention. I have also picked another 2lbs (mixing measurements!) of ripe tomatoes, bringing the total to over 16lbs – not bad from only 4 Gardeners’ Delight plants and the tiny but prolific fruits of the currant tomatoes. I know a lot of people say their tomatoes have done poorly this year, but ours have clearly enjoyed something about our greenhouse and the vagaries of our 2012 summer – I cannot profess to have been diligent about watering and feeding either. Even The Golfer has been seen voluntarily putting tomatoes in his sandwiches!

    Lovely when plants do better than expected, also wonderful that they have done so well without any extra attention.

    I’ve obviously get my pepper cultivation technique all wrong. Mine are all small and stubbornly green. it is a race against time to see if they will turn red or wrinkle to inedibility as they sit in the window. Green-eyed monster get behind me!

    Honestly, Chris, it IS only one – the other plant has has one very misshapen green offering that for some reason is starting to rot. And there was definitely no special treatment! I now have to come up with a delectable dish worthy of using this pepper in – any suggestions?
