I suspect I eat more of my Anaheim and Poblanos than I do all the rest of my peppers combined.

Wow you guys are getting spinach in summer! It's cool to see what people can eat in the different zones. I got two zukes and a handful of pole beans.

Not sure why this surprises me every year, but, was surprised at just how good a sandwich made from my Cherokee Purple tomatos tasted.

Good for you Dusty, I am waiting for mine to ripen, still green. I harvested two zukes today and will make them for lunch.

Handful of purple pole beans! I flung some milorganite on all the beds today. I also flung some epsom salt in the beds a couple of weeks ago. Soooo Moo Ha ha, I hope my yields will be improving. I see two small tomatoes, but they're all taking their time.

A bunch of Collard Greens, 2 zukes, a few tomatoes and one Anaheim pepper. Getting ready to have them for lunch.
I didn't try to add Epsom salt before, what would that do? I guess it depends on the soil type?

You're correct. I'm a naughty gardener who should have done a soil test before just flinging things on the soil. Don't follow my bad example. According to what I've read, soluble magnesium is good for peppers and tomatoes. So, I just flung a bit around since I have epsom salts in the house.
