A week or so ago, I took a day off and we went picking peppers. And some blackberries too, but mostly peppers. There’s a vendor at a couple of the markets we frequent, Rainbow Farms in Madison, that also does some pick-your-own stuff. I was mostly interested in tomatoes – these weren’t quite ready yet, but we were also interested in peppers, so we still took the trip. $10 for a 1/2 bushel basket of peppers, so not a bad deal. They have a variety of sweet and not-sweet (banana, Hungarian, jalapeño, a couple bells – nothing too fiery, if that’s what you’re looking for), and somehow we ended up with two baskets full, so we’re looking at 30 pounds of peppers and trying to figure out what to do with all of them… I suppose we’ll manage.
