Freak Peppers

We picked the last of the peppers on Sunday.  After covering (and uncovering) them several times we decided to take advantage of the lovely day and clean up the garden beds for the winter--except for that one which Matt is using for experimental fall plantings of carrots and greens.  The hoses were disconnected.  The ditch pump drained and stored.  The grass mowed one last time.  Leaves and pepper plants added to the compost pile.  All under the lovely autumn sun.

In harvesting, cleaning, and weighing the peppers we found a few extra special fruits--like a nardello pepper that had tied itself up in knots and a bell pepper with a tongue.  You don't see gems like this at the store!
