The other ones are banana peppers. #plantlover ðŸ’œDid some gardening today. I picked a bunch of green tomatoes and I'm letting them sit in the sun to ripen.

Isn't it beautiful! 💜A couple days ago my hubby found a bike for me at a yard sale. Funny how things work. For a while I've been saying I would love to have a bike. He told me if we can find one decent for a reasonable price he'll get me one since we're having it rough right now. Well the universe had this one lined up just for me at only $2. It was love at first sight. A little paint and some TLC it'll be good as new. I'm so happy! Sorry to yammer on.
