My Twitter friend Shannon aka @FlynnFish knows how to celebrate. Recently she shared this amazing appetizers she created using Anaheim peppers and a few fresh ingredients. This is a great recipe the day after Easter using left-over smoked ham. In today’s post I’m sharing Shannon’s Anaheim Pepper Bacon Wrap Recipe.

Bren Grill Recommendation
Looking for a grill for year-round grilling fun? I’ve owned MANY grills in my life time of all shapes, sizes and makes and I have a few I highly recommend. In today’s post I used my trust Weber Spirit Grillwhich I’ve been using in my garden for the past 2 years. This grill uses liquid propane that is so easy to hook up – even I CAN DO IT without asking my husband or son for help! Weber Spirit Grill
Shopping For Pepper Plants
The month of May my husband I love to make the trip to Swanton, Ohio. The selection of peppers at Sadowski Greenhouse / Market is amazing. This local farm not only has a great selection of produce in the late summer for canning they always has a great selection of starter plants that are perfect for any home garden.
The #1 rule when growing peppers is they love it HOT and dry so be sure to have a location the plant will get plenty of sun and heat. Peppers actually love to be neglected – so don’t be afraid to let them go a few weeks without water once the starter plant is established.
The photos in this collection are from one of my visits to Sadowski Greenhouse in the Spring. I usually pack my SUV with over a dozen flats of bedding plants and veggies. This is a trip I always look forward to in the Spring here in Ohio.

My Veggie Garden
In this album I’m sharing what my larger veggie garden looks like in the summer here in Ohio. I grow a few dozen different peppers in this location on our property. Peppers are one of my favorites to grow lots of because you can freeze them and everyone always enjoys getting a few peppers from the harvest when they stop by!

I’m really looking forward to being back in my veggie garden. This year I have running water in the garden featured above so I’m sure it will be a wonderful year of growing.
