Sweet Peppers In July!?
We oftentimes forget how spoiled we are to have two 96' hot houses for growing warm-season crops.
The tomatoes are almost ripe, the cucumbers are in full swing, and the peppers are just begging to be picked.
Not kidding. They are in full lean-over mode due to the abundance of fruit that are set on them. We have no choice but to do a mid-season trellis.
Incidentally, we are also going to share some with you this week :)
An easy way to eat peppers at this time of year is to simply grill them on the barbecue and eat them as a side dish. You can also amp the fanciness level a tiny bit with olive oil and salt. And don't just fire up the bbq for the pepper, add the scapes too!
Another warm-day option is to make burrito bowls, think tex-mex stir-fry atop a grain such as quinoa or rice. We play with our bowls quite a bit, ranging the flavour from indian to asian, but I think that the burrito bowl is my favourite.
Don't feel like cooking up grains? Just plop the above stir-fry into some sort of flat bread, put your feet up, and call it a day.
