This thing is huge! I was warned that bell peppers grown at home tend to be smaller than what you see at the grocery store, but this one certainly didn't follow that pattern. I kept watching it since I wasn't too sure when to take it off, but when it got this big, I figured it was time. And there are more coming! We have five bell pepper plants and they are all doing well. In a short while we'll get some banana peppers too, and I am patiently waiting for our tomatoes to turn red (they are quite large as well). It's so much fun to see the hard work we put into the garden turn into food!
