First (Faux) Harvest of 2011
There they are. The first two Bell Peppers to come out of our garden this summer.
You're saying to yourself, "But...Jake....they're tiny!"
They are, indeed, tiny. And, I suppose that is the point. I pinched both of these off of two different pepper plants because I'm (hopefully) trying to get the plant to focus all of it's energy on growing the plant up nice and tall instead of channeling energy into these nascent peppers.
The book I am using for guidance tells me that pinching off the early fruits will help the plant grow larger fruit all season long. We'll see how this turns out.
