Picked a Peck of Peppers
Most of us have heard the children's story of Peter Piper who picked a peck of pickled peppers, but how much is a peck? It took me a little while to figure it out, but a peck is 2 gallons. Ironically, today hubby truly picked a peck of peppers from our garden - a combination of jalapeno and cayenne. We have so many peppers that we packed 5 quart bags to take to people at work and we still added quite a few to our freezer. Our plants still have so many on there that we will probably pick another peck in a couple of days.
