figs and shishito peppers

We’ve decided to post more food photos- since our productive garden is so much about eating… Here’s a shot of mission figs + dried shishito peppers. Our mission fig tree is going crazy with figs- it’s the second crop of the season, and the tree will continue to produce until we get a hard frost here in the valley. Our shishito peppers are also going full steam ahead right now, until the frost. For shishito peppers, we eat them green ( I like to char them in a cast iron skillet, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with maldon sea salt), but we also let some stay on the plant, and they turn red as they mature. Once they’re about halfway dry, it time to pick them, and then save the seeds for next year. We’ll then start the new batch of shishito plants in January, indoors, along with the tomatoes.
