Chocolate Peppers? Yes Please!


While at the market this past Saturday I found a merchant selling plants.  I’d been on the lookout for a few peppers since some of mine didn’t transplant well.  Most of the family isn’t fond of spice so I decided to go with sweet.  When I saw the tag on these I couldn’t resist.  Chocolate Beauty!  Why have the typical red, green or yellow when you can have chocolate colored.  DSCF8376

Little Farm Chick insisted on helping.  We got the plants in quickly since it was so hot and gave them a generous helping of water.  I was reading “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” to my girls tonight, and it got me thinking.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if they were actually chocolate flavored? They’d fit right in at the chocolate factory.  They’d be a favorite of the Oompa-Loompas.  Yummy!  Hopefully they will grow well and we’ll get lots of peppers to enjoy!
