Posted June 2nd, 2009 by Chris V.

Grown with the same amount of love and care as the tomatoes since late February of this year, this year’s pepper offering is full of many delicious sweet or hot possbilities. They come in two sizes – small and large. Not all types are available in all sizes.

Other veggie/fruit plants are at the end of the table following the peppers.
