Anaheim Pepper Bacon Wrap Recipe

My Twitter friend Shannon aka @FlynnFish  knows how to celebrate.  Recently she shared these 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 lifetime of all shapes, sizes and makes and I have a few I highly recommend.  In today’s post, I used my trust Weber Spirit Grill which 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!

It won’t be long…….

My large veggie garden in Ohio where I grow peppers, tomatoes, corn and loads more!

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 growth.   I can’t wait to share my adventure along the way so please be sure to follow and subscribe to my Creative Living and Growing with Bren Newsletter.

[alert-announce]Did I inspire you to grow more peppers?  I hope you were able to give Shannons’ recipe a try.  I can’t wait to grill some up this week as the weather turns warmer and I’m finally over the horrible cold / flu I had.  I’m looking forward to connecting with you so please be sure to comment below and share your website or favorite facebook page where we can connect.

Happy Gardening,
