I'm a Farmer

Yep, folks...I said it. I am a farmer. Not just a gardener, but a farmer. Well, that may be an overstatement, but I was so excited to pick my first crop of green beans this evening, I walked into the house and proudly showed my harvest to my husband and declared my new status as a FARMER. I also picked the remainder of the abnormally shaped radishes, a few Sweet Million tomatoes, 3 Big Bomb peppers (maybe too early, since they are still green, but I'll leave the others on until they turn red), some nice lookin' banana peppers and a few onions to go with those green beans.
We ate about half of the beans for dinner tonight. Cooked them with the onions and some garlic in the pressure cooker, mmm mmm good. Anyone have any ideas of what to do with all the banana peppers?

  1. I also want to be a farmer but I guess that my greenhouse will have to do for now. Have you ever tried growing in other mediums than dirt? I grow in gutters and two liter bottles. The work is a lot less than it is for a farmer with his dirt. :)
