I read an article recently that said 2015 was the year of the sweet pepper. With the amazing yields I have been harvesting out of just a handful of plants, I could not agree more! Not only are my sweet peppers doing well but my hot peppers are doing phenomenal as well! Marcos and I have been making all different kinds of yummy salsas and hot sauces. I do have to say that Marcos is the hot sauce making king! There is just no way I can go back to store bought hot sauces. And if you are wondering, no worries, there will be plenty of salsa and hot sauce posts to come. 😉
I have been giving peppers away to friends and co-workers almost every week and I feel very blessed that I am able to give away food that is safe and free from chemicals. However one of the greatest feelings is when someone tells me that I have inspired them in some way. By hearing my story, more and more friends and family members are seeing the value in home gardening and are asking me to help them get started. Honestly that is what it is all about. If I can help just one person realize that they do not have to be a slave to the high-priced, chemical filled grocery store produce section, then I can drop the mic and call it a mission accomplished.
Until next time!
