It's been raining for days now. Pretty dreary.

I picked what will probably be my last tomato for this year from the garden.

And I picked this green? red? pepper as well. Isn't it a scream? My goodness. A gene mix up? Some kind of cross-something or other? A pepper with an identity crisis? Remember when we used to use that term? Was that a 70s thing or do people still say that? Reminds me of the "going out west to find myself" kind of rhetoric. LOL

Well, I will take Lucky for a walk today even if it's raining. The poor thing's needs are being neglected. Rain, snow....these little challenges in life help us build endurance. God is good. All the time.

Wait..part of mine turned orange, because one side had the sun hitting it very strongly and the underside was green. ???
Oh..I got his card off this weekend..Jim's, I mean! :) Hope he doesn't think I am too much of a nutcake! LOL!

We get those a lot, I think that green peppers ultimately turn red, and it was interrupted in the process.
Enjoy, my friend, today and always.

Suz and Mimi, thank you for the info. As you can see, I'm an amateur gardener. This is the first year I've planted peppers. Good to know! Now I just have to remember where I planted the green ones and where I planted the red ones so I'm not waiting forever for the truly green ones to turn red :-)

Just found your blog through Catholic Mothers Online. Saw this pepper post and was going to tell you about the green to red process but I see you've already been informed. I was confused about my peppers the first time I planted them too. And yes I soon learned to mark mine!
