How many peppers are in a peck? Inquiring minds want to know. Hold on – checking Wikipedia….
A peck is an imperial and United States customary unit of dry volume, equivalent to 2 gallons or 8 dry quarts or 16 dry pints (9.09 (UK) or 8.81(US) liters). Two pecks make a kenning (obsolete), and four pecks make a bushel.
We also picked more tomatoes and a baby Fairy Tale Eggplant as well. Note on the Fairy Tale eggplant. This one is WAY past prime. I didn’t research sufficiently and had no idea that this is as big as they get. I had been waiting for it to grow (and it didn’t!)
Since I really wanted eggplants this year and the one we planted has been shaded by the giant tomato plants, I thought about possibly planting another small variety in an empty space. Unfortunately, there weren’t any plants to be found as it is on the very end of successful planting time. So – next year!
The Silvery Fir tomato is doing well – this is the one that we planted from seeds sent by GrowJourney in May. Speaking of seeds, I can’t wait to try the seeds that are coming this month. Chioggia Beets, Chicory, Russian Kale, Everlasting Spinach and Sprouting Broccoli. These like colder weather so won’t be planted for another month and a half, but I can’t wait!
