Summer Peppers!!

Planted "Long Red Slim" Variety Cayenne Peppers and Banana Peppers this year and just had the first harvest. I pickled a mixture of the two in apple cider vinegar and the taste is fantastic! Just a dab of it in a salsa or on peas makes all the difference in flavor. The Cayenne's are extremely hot!! I do not remember them being this hot when I have grown other varieties in the past. Usually the dry summer heat in Texas makes even a Jalapeno extremely hot, but it is still very early and these Cayenne's are kickin' already!! I will post more pictures of the squash, melons, tomatoes, and herbs as the summer progresses. Hope everyone is having great luck in their gardens so far!
