Chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A little piece of heaven………yes, I said heaven!  When I crave a piece of Godiva chocolate cheese cake, Bulldog Man knows not to come home with any old cheese cake (no I’m not pregnant).
See ladies, I have my hubby trained well.  This evening, Bulldog Man came home with a piece of Godiva chocolate cheese cake.  Evidence photo…………..

I even shared half of the cheese cake with my darling husband, Bulldog Man.

Speaking of chocolate, I planted Sweet Chocolate Peppers.  The plants started producing peppers; I was waiting for them to change colors from green to chocolate.  The past two days, the peppers started changing colors.  Soon I’ll be able to harvest them.  I can’t wait to try them to see how sweet they taste.

This year was the first year I planted Albino Peppers.  I’ve noticed the peppers grow upside down on the plant.  Is that normal?  Has anyone else grown these types of peppers?

Here’s another shot of my green beans, they have taken off like crazy, I truly hope I’m able to harvest beans off of these vines before the cold rolls in here in Oklahoma.

The peas I planted are now tall enough to start attaching to the fence trellis.  I can see something has already started to munch on the seedlings.  Out came my handy homemade bug spray to take care of the problem (water, alcohol, and Dawn soap).



This Friday, I picked up a few silver coins to put away.  The price had decreased and I thought why not……

  1. The peppers I have that look and grow exactly like your albino ones were called hungarian peppers when I bought it at a local master gardener sale.

    And one bite would be all I would want from that cheesecake... too rich for my taste buds.

    1. PP,

      Hungarian, interesting. I'll have to research yours and see if mine are the same.

      I only had 3 bites, and gave up.

  2. Where do you get your silver? I've thought of doing that as well. Do you just go to a coin store? I guess you just pay based on silver and not "collectibility"?

    Though I'd trade some silver for that cheesecake myself, ha.

    1. 1st Man,

      Reputable gold and silver dealer is where we go. Depended on spot price (what gold and silver are exchanging for that day, plus premium, plus availability) will determine what we purchase that day.

      We try to buy mostly 90 percent coin, sterling silver, or solid silver. We only purchase 40 percent coin in good condition.

      The cheesecake was a treat, we very seldom get it. When we do, hubby and I split the piece.

  3. Yum on the cheesecake! One of my faves too! I'm not a huge pepper fan, so I can offer no advice on them. They are interesting and I'll be waiting to hear what you think of them.

    1. Izzy,

      Yes cheesecake is a good thing, we spoil ourselves every once in a blue moon :-)

      As soon as we harvest them I'll make a post to let you know about the peppers.

  4. Your garden is really pretty. I'd be ashamed to show mine; overgrown! Have to agree with you on chocolate. And cheesecake. My fav is the Chocolate Cheesecake from Atchafalaya River Cafe in Houston.

    1. Leigh,

      Thank you, I try to plant some pretty flowers mixed in with the vegetables. Don't be ashamed to show yours, be proud. You've worked hard to get your garden to produce a wonderful harvest.

      The next time I'm in Houston, I'm going to have to check this place out :-)

  7. Sandy, I spotted those chocolate peppers and just knew I was gonna have to see if you wanted to trade some Sweet Yellow Bell seed for some of those.
