Most gardeners struggle from time to time with a crop. My struggle is bell peppers. Over the years, I either grow a nice plant and it produces no bell peppers or I grow a nice plant that produces a couple of bell peppers. This year I had a nice plant, but no bells.
Since tomorrow is the first day of autumn, I decided to just pick some bell peppers from my father's garden. It's not the same as having the satisfaction of growing it myself, but at least I know how it was grown and I can use them in many recipes.
