September in our Sunnyvale garden is all about harvest. I planted an heirloom watermelon “Moon and the Stars” late in the spring. I love that the “Moon and the Stars” pattern is in the leaves.
I love chile peppers. So when I saw a hand-printed sign selling Hatch peppers by the case then I made an impulse buy. For more info, visitHatch Green Chile Sauce
My second dish with the Hatch Green Sauce was a Rice Frittata
Another late spring planting were Scarlet Runner Beans. The flowers are pretty. The beans are colorful, tasty, and the leftovers can be planted next year.
What to do with the last of the season tomatoes that will never get ripe? Harvest Relish
I planted a Vietnamese chile pepper in mid April. As advertised, it was a late season pepper. Look at all those peppers. It is a thin walled pepper best for stir-fry or allowed to dry and then ground into powder. This pepper has some bite to it.
