Shishitos and a Garden Update

This year's garden has not produced much to date...except for these little beauties. These are Shishito peppers and the first thing to be harvested. I'm looking forward to trying those tonight.

My green beans weren't great to begin with and then they got the tops eaten off by, most likely, deer. The same ones that munched on the tomatoes. The tomatoes are surviving, blooming even. We put cages around them and tied white plastic shopping bags on the wire. I read that it might discourage deer.

The bean plants are still hanging in there with a few beans almost big enough to pick, but I didn't see any more blooms. I suppose I will pick what there is an try replanting.

I did get some carrots on my first try, so maybe I'll plant some more for a fall garden.

Other things include parsley, green onions, a zucchini, red and yellow bell peppers and a poblano. And that is how the garden grows so far this year.


  1. Hi Linda - I see the peppers are sweet/mild ... while your carrots look wonderful - so so good looking! Good varieties of veggie .. enjoy as each ripen ... take care - Hilary

    1. The peppers and the carrots were delish! Unfortunately I only planted a short row of carrots and didn't thin them soon enough. After I did, some of them did make carrots.
