Italian Sweet Pepper

Our neighbor gave me a seedling of  an Italian Sweet Pepper last year so I saved some seeds   for this year out of the  fruit we had last year.  I  grow them this year and there are so many fruits now.
Italian  peppers reminds me of the oldest neighbor we had when we first moved here.  He  was very fond of gardening.  His garden was always flawless, you won't see any weed or grass inside it at all.  He died a couple of years ago, he was 96 years old.  He died peacefully of natural causes at his home.   His daughter told us that when he  died, he was smiling.   He was a very good neighbor.

Love sharing my gardening memories with my grandmother too! She's 93 and still loves her flower gardens and enjoys talking about my garden!

My husband likes Italian peppers. Actually, any pepper will do. According to him, eating hot food makes the metabolism goes faster.

Very nice looking peppers sis! I couldn't grow lots of variety of veggies this year in our garden. Kids and I got to participate more on my MIL or BIL's garden :)

It was a surprise to me when we moved from California to Indiana many years ago, that they called peppers, mangos. We have moved many times since then and no where else have I found that. You brought back that memory again. Loved your shadowy photo.

Ah, such sweet goodness. We are awaiting our peppers to grow some more, but I am thinking of splitting it down the middle and making a stuffing with Asagio cheese and sausage. Very nice fruit and a wonderful tribute to a friendly and generous neighbor!

How wonderful that you had the opportunity to get to know him and his garden.
