The First of the Peppers

First of the Peppers!
This morning I was able to get the first small bunch of peppers in earnest. My sole banana pepper bush did well and I was able to pick five one ounce peppers from it, five serrano peppers weighing in at 3.2 ounces total, and a lone jalapeno pepper also at one ounce.

The serrano bush is doing well and I should have some more from it in another day or two. The banana pepper bush has some other blooms on it, but given the size of these peppers and the smallish stature of the bush, it is easily the smallest in the garden now, that I suspect it to be awhile before I come across many others. The jalapeno bush still has another eight or nine left on it, some which should be ready in a few days. Not bad all told, but I am still disappointed in the size of these "Mammoth Jalapenos." They really just look like regular jalapenos to me.
