We have been busy at the projects, here on the ridge.

Today we processed our first picking of the Anaheim Green Chili.  We love this type of pepper, and it is very flavorful.  It is not a hot pepper, but it is spicy, especially when they are roasted.  The following photos will walk through on how we process the peppers.

There were over 20 peppers ready.  This is the first picking and we should get at least two more pickings before the close of the garden.  I will keep them in the ground till the first frost.  I am figuring that we should end up with at least a bushel, when it’s all said and done.

We just use the regular grill and roast them.

It does not take long to give them a good char.  After they are charred, they need to be removed and put under a towel, so they can be peeled.

Then once peeled, and the top pinched off, they go in the bags and hit the freezer!

So, we got three packs for the freezer, and one pack for breakfast burritos tomorrow!
That’s about the best project I could ever ask for, because we absolutely love these roasted chilies, and they brighten our cold weather mornings in the winter.  

Hope y’all have a terrific weekend, and keep those sunny days happy!

Things are quite abuzz here on the farm.  Just put up 9 half pints of sugar free ketchup, and the garden is producing excellent!  

Last night, just before dark, I went out and picked tomatoes again.

So we have a hand full of beans which is the fifth picking, some pickling cucumbers, a couple of onions, zucchini, and wonderful tomatoes!  
Made stuffed Zucchini Boats, with some for the freezer and some to eat now!

I love how the lilies close at night and then open in the morning.  Fascinating!

Even managed to get a good day of fishing in!

Hope y’all have a weekend full of laughter!
