We had a small harvest yesterday - banana peppers, a couple of cubanelles and a purple bell pepper.

We're in a hot hot hot spell for WI. Hopefully tomorrow or the next day I'll harvest a lot of kale. I put the spearmint I dried in 2 1-qt jars today (for tea).

I've been hearing about how how it is for gardeners in the MW, blissful! People I know in MN and northern MO are in that same hot spell!

It's below average here, after only a couple hot days. But that heat is headed this way, come this weekend. Some things I'm growing do like the heat, but my greens need harvested, as most have at least a hint of bolting.

Welcome back Pepperhead.

Oh yeah, it is hot hot hot here. Tomorrow will be a relief at 85 deg F. I'm hoping to get more done. Mr bliss has been watering at 6 am, then again at night, to do it when it is cooler. I hope you get some warm weather if that will be good for you and your gardens.

It's cooling again, now, down to 73° at 2:30 pm, after only getting to 78° earlier. And it is forecast to only get to 76° tomorrow! My peppers, and other heat lovers can breathe easy - Sat and Sun are forecast to get to 90°, and it's supposed to be above average for a while now.

The Yellow Warren and Sunsugar are starting to ripen more, and I sampled one of each outside yesterday, and brought these inside to ripen another day. The YW has a hint of red on it, even more today than yesterday, sort of like Sunrise, but larger. Flavor is very good, just not as sweet as Sunsugar.

Peas wrapping up, will be getting the last row out this weekend and replacing with my extra tomato plants that I've kept potted until they had somewhere to be planted. Also, blueberries kicking in, red currants in full harvest mode ( currant pics taken about a week ago, now just about all ripe and ready to be picked)

Larry, what do you do with your red currants? I ask because they are used a lot in Danish cooking. Of course they go into some desserts, like the infamous rødgrød med fløde. Red currant jelly is an ingredient in Danish red cabbage and it's also used as an addition to gravy, not a lot, just enough to add a little something to the flavour.

Do you use them concurrently in the rødgrød med fløde and the danish red cabbage?

Well, the two dishes would be made separately. The rødkål (red cabbage) would get some of the currant jelly and be served as a side dish with supper. The rødgrød med fløde would have red currants as one of the red fruit ingredients and be served for dessert.

I just snack on them. They are at the end of my driveway , so every morning, before leaving for work, I grab a handful.

My wife doesnt like them, as they are more tart than sweet so they're all mine. I kinda compare them to aa more tart, less sweet pomegranate seed, as they are similar in texture ( with the little seed inside).

Also, I dont think the birds figured them out yet, or they just dont like them, so I get an abundance of them. Its amazing how many berries a few plants produce.

Ive had black currant juice in the past which I liked a lot.
