I picked our first poblano peppers of the season—beautiful, shiny green, almost as big as my hand. In celebration, I made them into delicious chili rellenos topped with avocado from our neighbor’s tree and served with home made rice and beans and a fresh green salad—straight from the garden. So fun to eat food you grew yourself, and its better for YOU and the PLANET. Can’t beat that!Pepper Growing Tips:
Peppers need heat! Grow them in a sunny place in the yard. Smaller peppers are easier to grow because the fruit takes less time to ripen. I’ve found jalapeños and poblanos to be amongst the easiest to grow. Sometimes the fruit will ripen before it reaches supermarket size, don’t worry it will taste great! Pick it an enjoy!
