Beautiful Backyard Bounty! & the Purple Surprise Pepper

Beautiful Backyard Bounty! & the Purple Surprise Pepper

I just love this time of year when a little bit of everything is being harvested from my backyard farm.

In the picture above you will see beans, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, herbs & peppers. 

Every year I like to grow a unique variety of vegetable that I have never grown before.  I always try to grow organically and to grow heirloom plants  - I also always like to grow everything from seed.  This year was a little strange because I bought a few plants instead of starting from seed & I believe (& hope) that this "Purple Surprise Pepper" is an heirloom but it very well could be a hybrid (I lost the tag to this pepper so I just made up a name).

This pepper is so dark purple that it almost looks black.  The surprise comes when you cut open the pepper and see that the inside is as green as a normal green bell pepper.  The taste is very sweet and enjoyable!

  1. Great pictures. The purple pepper looks interesting. I have never seen a purple one. We are growing veggies and it is always exciting we can pick them and eat them! : )
