Best landscaped town – and my pepper

Our town, Westfield, just won the America in Bloom contest – meaning we were awarded the honor of being the best-landscaped town of 25,000-50,000 people.

And the reason I mention this, is just as an excuse to show you my red pepper – that actually grew from a (purchased) plant in my garden. It’s the first one grown here, though there are several new babies forming. Not that it’s October or anything – and this one took all summer plus Sept/Oct to grow.  So don’t be expecting me to hand over one to you any time soon.

The first redness

slowly changing...

almost there

picking time! I used the flash from the camera to provide me light to cut it off the stem

eaten in a salad with our home-grown tomato


  1. End of article says Westfield may enter the international competition. Take that Slovenia!

  2. Congrats! I bet it was the best salad you ever had
